Policy Landlord disabled adaptation policy

Show all parts of this policy

1. Policy statement and scope

We are committed to encouraging our tenants and their household to live independently in the community by carrying out adaptations to their home or moving to a more suitable home when required.

We recognised that a disability can take many forms and can affect a person's ability to fully access and enjoy their home.  We are committed to meeting the needs of our tenants as well as effectively using our existing housing stock.

This policy identifies how we will encourage our tenants to live in properties suitable for their need as well as helping them to live independently by adapting their homes through minor and major adaptations.
