Housing has always been centre stage in terms of community care for adults. Yet the housing needs of disabled children and their families have only recently been acknowledged. Housing Matters presents evidence to support and inform change in policy and practice to ensure that the housing needs of disabled children and their families are better met.The report challenges traditional notions of housing need, calling for a reconceptualisation that embraces all impairments, focuses on child-centred needs and extends beyond the ’four walls’ of the family home. The findings of the report are discussed and interpreted within the context of current policy and practice.
