Housing Suitable / Accessible Homes in RBWM Survey About Us

The Disability & Inclusion Forum (formerly Access Advisory Forum) have asked People to Places to help with a Housing Survey.  The Forum brings together residents, community groups and charities with RBWM councillors and officers to ensure that matters affecting people with disabilities are included in council decision making

It continues to raise awareness of the need for new homes built to a standard that enables people to stay in their homes as they get older and are easily adaptable to meet the needs of residents and families with long-term health conditions, learning difficulties and disabilities.

The Council is developing a long-term plan for the borough which includes policies for new homes. We calculated this plan would only deliver around 400 new adaptable homes, a fraction of what we believe is needed now and in the coming decades.

The Council is consulting with residents and others about the long-term plan. The Forum will be providing evidence to RBWM with the aim of changing housing policy. The evidence includes good practice from other local authorities and regulations or guidance we think the council ignored or missed in developing their Housing Mix policy. Lastly we also want to submit information about us and our current homes.

  • What long-term health conditions, disabilities or learning difficulties do we, or someone else in our household, have ?
  • What are the issues in our home that make life harder ?

o   Is it difficult to get into our home and hard to move around inside ?

o   Do we need more facilities such as a downstairs WC ?

o   What adaptations do we need now  / in the future ?

  • Even if no one in our household has disabilities, can our home accommodate visiting frailer relatives ?

We have developed a questionnaire (all responses are anonymous) to give us the last piece of evidence to submit to RBWM in early December. Please would you complete our survey by 29th November 2019 and help us try to change housing policy.
