Housing options for disabled people
We work with a number of partners to offer more housing choice, flexibility and control to disabled people and their families.
We work to increase the availability of housing for people with disabilities through effective allocation of our properties, adapting properties to meet particular needs and by maximising design for our new homes. Approximately 25 per cent of our properties are fully accessible.
We support the Glasgow Centre for Inclusive Living’s development of Home2Fit, a national online database and self-help resource to assist disabled people to find suitable housing.
It allows disabled people to search and match what they want with what's available and make contact with housing providers who have accessible homes in their area of choice.
Horizon, Housing Options Scotland and Link developed a shared ownership scheme called Access Ownership to help disabled people own a home which meets their needs.
Demand for the programme is growing and Horizon plans to secure additional investment to be able to meet the needs of a greater number of disabled people, if you would like more information please contact us.
Adapting your home
We have a commitment to adapting homes so a greater number of disabled and older people can remain in their homes or become independent in their community. If you are a Horizon tenant we may be able to arrange to have your property adapted to meet your needs.
