Back in 1996, when people with disabilities faced incredible challenges if they wanted to buy their own home, the first edition of Ownership Options laid the foundations for what has now become a much more widely accepted housing route.
As something of a seminal work we were delighted when its author, Nigel King, asked to co-write a second edition.This new version brings the story of what’s happened in the intervening years right up to date, featuring in depth case studies on just a few of our many happy homeowners. Here are just some of the key areas that this invaluable book covers:
· An overview of the possibilities of ownership
· How funding works
· The different ownership models
· Overcoming the obstacles – tips, tricks and traps
Whilst the infrastructure needed to make home ownership for people with a disability happen is in place, frustratingly only a small percentage of possible owners have made that giant leap. The numbers are growing all the time and as more and more people discover the benefits this is obviously set to continue. But this book, like its forerunner, will play a key role in taking this concept to a new level. In fact it’s nothing less than essential reading for anyone who works with and supports people with a disability, which is why we’re offering a copy to you at the special rate of just £24.95 (normal price £29.95). Numbers are limited and this offer will end on August 31st so please place your order today to avoid disappointment. We know that people are still referring to the first edition (over 14 years after it was published!) so this new version is set to be an incredibly useful resource for many years to come.
