    Accessible Homes Week

    Every September, we run a week of action - Accessible Homes Week - to celebrate what an accessible home can do for a person's wellbeing, independence and overall quality of life.


    To mark what was our eighth annual week, in September 2023, we commissioned the London School of Economics to undertake research to demonstrate the economic and social value of wheelchair user homes to society. Find out more about that research.
