Join Habinteg and an invited panel in an online gathering to find out more about our latest research with the London School of Economics and Political Science Housing and Communities research group, which reveals a clear and powerful economic case for wheelchair accessible homes that must not be ignored.
Living not existing: the economic and social value of wheelchair user homes shows that building more wheelchair user homes for disabled people, from children to adults over 66, could save the public purse millions over a 10 year period.
This event, which is part of Accessible Homes Week 2023, will feature a live panel discussion with audience Q&A discussing the implications of the research across a range of stakeholder groups.
Following a short welcome by Habinteg CEO Nick Apetroaie, Habinteg’s Director of Social Impact & External Affairs, Christina McGill, will be talking with:
Bert Provan, Senior Policy Fellow, and Researcher Laura Lane, London School of Economics & Political Science Housing and Communities research group
Vanessa Dockerill, the Government’s Disability and Access Ambassador for Housing
Claire Stafford, Policy & Practice Advisor, Royal Town Planning Institute
Mike Nevin, Habinteg Insight Group member and wheelchair user
