A social approach to supporting and empowering disabled people in housing: Frontline Briefing (2023)
Everyone should have the right to live in safe, secure housing that meets their needs. For many disabled people, however, this is just one aspect of their lives where they encounter disadvantage and discrimination; a situation which has been exacerbated by the cost-of-living crisis (El Dessouky and McCurdy, 2023). This Frontline Briefing provides an essential resource for practitioners to develop their understanding of disabled people’s relationship with housing and the importance of using the social model of disability when assessing housing needs and providing support.
