About the event:
Housing provides some of our most fundamental needs and yet we have a chronic shortage of accessible and adapted housing in Scotland. Without an accessible house that meets their needs, many older people and disabled people continue to live in unsuitable accommodation. And, as we know during these times of restrictions, the home has become a locus for many people’s work lives, caring responsibilities, family lives and social lives.
At this summit you will hear a range of perspectives (housing, disability organisations, health and social care, developers and architects) which should focus our minds collectively on how we can achieve more accessible homes across Scotland, best support disabled people and those in older age to live well and independently and work towards building and adapting homes for life in inclusive communities.
We can no longer afford to ignore accessible housing need in Scotland. It needs to be on everyone’s agenda.
