This book provides a comprehensive overview and investigation of housing issues for disabled people from a social model perspective, looking at relevant policy, meanings of 'home' and potential barriers to housing options. It examines physically inaccessible environments, general labour market disadvantage, communication constraints and the attitudes, assumptions and practices of housing and allied service providers. All of these can negatively impact on disabled people's access to, and experiences of, housing. Such a review is crucial to understanding the varying housing needs and desires of disabled people, particularly in the current economic climate and with the recent change of government. The book will be of interest to housing practitioners and policy makers, as well as academics and students in the field.
