HoME - Housing Made for Everyone

Housing Made for Everyone (HoME) is a coalition of ten organisations calling for urgent action to tackle the UK’s acute and growing shortage of accessible homes.

All members have signed up to a shared vision and charter to review society’s approach to housing and ensure all new housing is built to be suitable for the changing needs of our ageing population and disabled people.

HoME is calling for the ‘accessible and adaptable’ design standard (set out in volume 1 of the Building Regulations M4 Category 2) to be made the mandatory baseline for all new homes; for Local Authorities to ensure their housing policies adequately reflect the needs of older and disabled people; and for housing associations and developers to commit to providing high quality homes fit for the future.

Government consultation: accessibility standards for new homes

The Government is now analysing responses to its consultation on raising the accessibility standards of new homes. Feedback is expected in the frst quarter of 2021.

We believe that more homes should be built that better meet the needs of current and future generations of older and disabled people. That's why the Housing Made for Everyone (HoME) coalition is calling for urgent action now.
