Being a Social Landlord
This 2012 report is part of the larger research project Being a Social Landlord in the 21st Century, which has focussed on the role of social landlords in meeting the housing needs of people living with disability. Drawing together literature review, focus groups of tenants who live with disability and perspectives from stakeholders in the social housing and disability sector, the aim is to answer two questions:
- What roles and responsibilities should we expect of social landlords that intend to provide for the housing and quality of life needs of tenants living with disability?
- How can social housing be provided to persons living with disability in ways that: maximise independence, enhance quality of life, minimise the level of discrimination or prejudice experienced, and assist in developing life skills that can be transferred to other dimensions of life
