housing and disabled people local authorities toolkit wales

This toolkit is for local authority elected members in Wales, particularly those involved in housing and planning.

It aims to support them to:

  • consider housing for disabled people in their strategies and plans
  • involve disabled people in a meaningful way
  • share best practice
  • help with scrutiny of local authority housing policies and practices

It covers:

  • your equality duties and housing
  • what 'good' looks like: policy development
  • what 'good' looks like in practice

It can be used by:

  • cabinet members
  • scrutiny members
  • members in their front-line role: managing casework or engaging with the community

We have produced a separate toolkit for disabled people and organisations that support disabled people.
