Abstract

Wheelchair users face particular design and accessibility barriers, both in and around the home and in the wider environment. The majority of homes in England (84%) do not allow someone using a wheelchair to get to and through the front door without difficulty, and only 0.5% of homes are reported to be ‘accessible and adaptable’. Habinteg Housing Association and London South Bank University have undertaken secondary research that presents national and regional estimates of housing need among wheelchair users in England and shows how these figures can be used to produce similar estimates at local authority level. There are three solutions to under‐provision, which should be strategically interlinked: development of new wheelchair standard homes (of all sizes) for both owner‐occupiers and tenants, support for home adaptations across tenures, and more efficient allocation, within social housing, of existing accessible and adaptable homes. This article refers to some of the key issues, results, conclusions and recommendations of the main research report.

Abstract

This paper produced for the Joseph Rowntree Foundation explores the connections between different strands of current social policy: support to strengthen and stabilise communities and neighbourhoods, support and care for individuals living or settling in communities and the potential and willingness of communities to support and act inclusively towards people who are vulnerable or in need of particular services. It posits a central tension between ‘consumerist’ and ‘collective’ approaches to services which may be inhibiting effective policy and practice. Is this actually the case?

Abstract

There are many reasons to evaluate services and the benefits of different options for providing housing and support. The new report described in this article gives an introduction to a system for the appraisal of cost and quality which can be used to make more informed choices about existing and new services.

Abstract

A partnership of agencies in South West England commissioned a review of supported housing, with the primary aim of linking supported housing (and the Supporting People programme) with other regional strategies and initiatives such as housing, health, crime reduction and community safety. The review produced a new conceptual framework for the planning and management of housing and support services, with a strong emphasis on aims and outcomes. It also brought together data on current services across the region and identified key trends and issues to be addressed. Many of the recommendations and proposals have been incorporated into the draft Regional Housing Strategy, due to be finalised in May 2005.
