The Hidden Housing Crisis

This report by Leonard Cheshire Disability calls for more disabled-friendly houses to be built. Their campaign, 'Home Truths' calls for house builders and all political parties commit to making sure the next generation of homes are all easily adaptable - with downstairs toilets, stronger walls to fit grab-rails, and bathrooms on the same level as bedrooms. It seeks for at least 1 in 10 new homes being fully wheelchair accessible and all other new builds being to Lifetime Home standards.
