Following its and editions the new page volume is an essential update, and aims to encourage us all to consider the holistic impacts of accessible housing during all stages of the design process. There is a growing need for wheelchair accessible housing, and high quality design is important across the spectrum. The benefits to the individuals and families are invaluable, whatever the tenure.

The clear explanations and the reasoning behind the technical standards will help practitioners gain a better understanding of how to maximise the independence of residents — and will be particularly useful to those who wish to go beyond basic minimum standards and help create inclusive and cohesive communities. Our future depends on an equal and fair society — the provision of more accessible homes is fundamental to achieving this.

Habinteg recognises that accessible homes change lives, and are committed to demonstrating and sharing best practice in regards to access and inclusion.

The guide is dedicated to the memory of the late Sir Bert Massie, former Habinteg tenant and Board member and Chair of the Disability Rights Commission, who lent his voice so willingly to the call for more accessible homes.
