Leonard Cheshire Disability have launched the second report of their Home Truths campaign No Place Like Home: 5 million reasons to make housing disabled-friendly.

The report shows that:

  •  5 million people in the UK have a mobility problem and could benefit from a disabled-friendly home
  • Three quarters (75%) report that they live in a home without an accessible front door

To raise the profile of this issue further they are inviting people to post their own story about disabled-friendly housing – good and bad experiences such as:

  • Trying to find a disabled-friendly home
  • Having a home adapted
  • Living in a home that is not suitable
  • A friend or family member who needs a disabled-friendly home
