As the organisation that helped to pioneer a unique home ownership opportunity for people with a disability over a decade ago we’re passionate about continuing to do whatever we can to give more people the chance to turn their hopes into homes.
With this in mind, and to gain a clearer understanding of the current awareness of home ownership as a viable option as well the barriers that are still standing in the way, we’ve designed a short survey (it should take no more than a minute or two) for professionals involved in supporting people with a disability. This could be Social Workers, Care Workers, Local Authorities, Community Group Leaders...basically anyone who has the opportunity to support someone with a disability.
We will publish the results of this survey and use our findings to further hone the services that we provide, in turn helping you help more people buy a home of their own.
If you’re not directly involved in helping someone with a disability, but know someone who is and who might be interested in taking part, please feel free to forward the survey link below.
Thank you for your help. A little of your time could make a big difference...
