In 1970, Habinteg was founded by a group of people with a shared desire to create accessible homes and communities where disabled and non-disabled people can live together as neighbours. 

Over the last 50 years we've worked hard to demonstrate the value of accessible housing.

Today, our mission remains the same. We champion inclusion by providing and promoting accessible homes and neighbourhoods that welcome and include everyone, using our expert knowledge to inspire and influence decision makers. 

We are proud to be celebrating 50 years of Habinteg and the impact the organisation has made over the last five decades. And with our Habinteg 2020 essay competition we asked for ideas on what the next 50 years might bring for accessible homes. 

Check back here later in the autumn for news of the winner!
