Network webinar

Improving accessibility & creating inclusive communities

About

The social housing sector takes pride in providing care for their communities and the White Paper stands as a testament to the importance of building more suitable and inclusive homes.

Now, more than ever, the coronavirus crisis has highlighted the vital work that carers do. It has also shown that, as a society, we need to do more than just pay lip service to valuing both professional careers and those in voluntary work. From providing homes with specialist care and support, to offering care services to people who want to live independently at home, we have to show that committment to supporting our local communities.

Join us and hear from Julie Doyle and Nic Bungay, who will introduce Harry’s Pledge and will explain how to improve the lives of disabled people and their carers, by focusing on 4 key components of the pledge.

Harry’s Pledge is asking the housing sector to support those who need care, and those who provide it, in the following four ways:

  • Being supportive employers to people that have caring responsibilities
  • Making offices and community spaces as accessible as possible
  • Building more fully-accessible and inclusive homes
  • Further professionalising and promoting care as a career, and lobbying for changes in pay and rewards for carers.
