Recommendation on housing for people with disabilities
Efforts to improve the quality of housing for the disabled are contained in a new recommendation issued by the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health.
The aim is to provide municipalities with broad guidelines that can be used in local authority decision-making, and the intention is that housing needs for the disabled will be met practically and comprehensively.
The recommendation covers the inclusion of housing for disabled people in municipal planning, making the built environment accessible and functional, and ensuring a proper supply of housing suitable for the disabled. It also deals with the accessibility of public services and the need for individualised services.
