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.
Today, ITV News broadcast a powerful story in collaboration with Habinteg on the accessible housing crisis and some people who have been affected by it.
Today, the Building Better Building Beautiful Commission report was released and its aims are to promote health, well-being and sustainable growth. For a report that is designed to promote health, it was surprising that there was no mention of accessible housing which is a critical element of ‘building better’.
