Habinteg Housing Association is a registered social housing provider with 50 years’ experience building and promoting accessible homes and communities. We own and manage more than 3300 homes and we operate in 86 local authorities across England and Wales.
We believe that having an accessible home in an inclusive setting can transform the lives of disabled people and those around them. We want communities to include disabled people, offering places to live that meet their needs and provide the highest levels of independence, choice and control over their daily lives.
Our mission is to champion inclusion by providing and promoting accessible homes and neighbourhoods that welcome and include everyone.
When planning improvements and community initiatives, we believe the tenant voice is powerful and we put the tenants’ needs at the heart of everything we do.
The number of people in need of accessible housing is growing and our housing stock needs to change to accommodate them, writes Sheron Carter
According to a YouGov poll commissioned by Habinteg, most people in Britain are not able to welcome wheelchair users into their homes due to poor access.
