Are you passionate about making a difference? Do you believe everyone deserves a home that is appropriate for their needs?

Habinteg wants to form a group of disabled people who are motivated to help us increase the supply of accessible homes.

At Habinteg, we champion inclusion by providing and promoting accessible homes and neighbourhoods that welcome and include everyone. We do this in three ways: providing home and services, demonstrating our expertise and influencing decisions.

We believe that the voice of disabled people is the most powerful tool in influencing the government, local authorities and housing providers to improve the provision of homes for disabled people. If you’re willing to share your experience of living in and looking for accessible homes and are confident speaking to new people you might be who we’re looking for.

We want to make sure our group is as diverse as the communities in which we work. You don’t need to be a Habinteg tenant to apply, the only criteria is that you have personal lived experience of requiring an accessible home.

 

What will you be expected to do?

Some ways you could get involved for us would be:

  • Sharing your experiences for articles in the press
  • Twice yearly meetings with the wider group
  • Supporting our #ForAccessibleHomes campaign
  • Being active in the accessible homes conversation on social media
  • Taking part in videos, case studies and photo shoots
  • Engaging with your local MP or supporting us with parliamentary activity
