Take Part in a National Survey of Housing for Disabled People

The Equality and Human Rights Commission want to understand whether the availability of accessible and adaptable housing and support services around it, fulfils disabled people’s rights to live independently.

They want to hear from YOU –  your views and experiences. This includes the effect it has on disabled people’s choice and control over housing  and your right to independent living.

We know as a community group accessible housing for people with disabilities in Knowsley is few and far between and any new homes should be homes built for life, to accommodate an individuals need and circumstances throughout life.  We also know that lots of young people with disabilities in Knowsley aspire to have a place of their own – not just a flat in shared supported living – we want to have more choice and a range of homes for local people pf all ages with disabilities and long term health conditions.

There are three questionnaires, one for each group of interest they would really like to hear from, please click on the appropriate link below which will take you to the survey.

The closing date for questionnaires  to be submitted is 23:59 on Tuesday 18 April 2017.

The information you give to The Equality and Human Rights Commission will form an important part of the evidence they will consider for their formal inquiry into housing and disability.

About the inquiry

In spring 2017, The Equality and Human Rights Commission will carry out a survey of all local authorities in England, Wales and Scotland. They expect the formal response from local authorities to be provided by the survey.

Individuals working for local authorities may wish to complete the housing provider’s questionnaire, giving a personal response based on their experience.

Please only complete the questionnaire that is relevant to you and only complete the questions that are relevant to your situation.
