We’re know the difficulties with finding accessible properties and we are delighted to share this interview of Hannah Cockcroft by TheHouseShop about the difficulties of finding accessible housing.
Finding a new home is difficult enough at the best of times, and finding a property that meets all your personal needs can be a painstaking and frustrating task for anyone and everyone. But as a disabled person trying to find a home that allows them to live independently, this task becomes nigh on impossible. Accessible and adapted property have been severely overlooked in the housing market, and given that 10% of the population identify themselves as disabled, it is quite frankly shocking that more mainstream solutions for disabled home-hunters are not available.
GB Paralympics golden girl, Hannah Cockroft, has spoken out about her personal experience finding properties that allow her to live independently, and the compromises she has had to make.
