Today marks the International Day of People with Disabilities. Since 1992, IDPWD has been observed every December 3rd by a range of organisations around the world.
The Theme this year is "The Future is Accessible" and envisions a time when all environmental and social barriers for people with disabilities are identified and everyone works together to overcome them.
At The Housing Agency we aim to support and advocate for accessible housing for all. The Housing Agency is the co-ordinator for the National Housing Strategy for People with Disabilities.
The Housing Agency also uses its central expertise to look forward and have prepared a number of publications to support design of housing "Design for Housing to Meet the Needs of all" and "Design for Mental Health".
