Housing Project (2013-2014)
The Housing Project aims to improve housing for people with disabilities in Northern Ireland. From 2008-2011 the project focused on research to find out about disabled peoples experiences in two areas: products and adaptations and peoples experiences when trying to find or adapt a house to meet their needs. The research resulted in a number of recommendations.
The Housing project is now focusing on how these recommendations can be implemented. The project will also work to make sure that disabled people and carers are involved in helping develop policy and services.
The project is funded by the Northern Ireland Housing Executive (NIHE) and Disability Action staff work closely with NIHE staff on the project.
