Inadequate housing affecting health of disabled children

A charity says many families believe unsuitable housing is damaging their children’s health. …

“We recognise the importance of improving accessibility, and the number of accessible homes has nearly doubled in a decade. Since 2010, we have invested over £4bn into the Disabled Facilities Grant, providing adaptations to almost 450,000 homes, including stairlifts, wet rooms and ramps. Councils are best placed to decide how much accessible housing is needed in their area, and set these requirements in their local plans.”
