housing and disabled people local authorities toolkit scotland

This toolkit is for those involved in housing and planning in local authorities in Scotland.

It covers:

  • the Public Sector Equality Duty
  • planning accessible homes
  • providing adaptations
  • accessible housing registers

It is aimed at elected members, whose influence on council policy, use of budgets and approach to legislative duties can make a huge impact on the provision of accessible housing and support services for disabled people.

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