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

It includes information, checklists, questionnaires and best practice examples, with separate, downloadable guides for:

  • providing and managing housing adaptations
  • the allocation of housing
  • planning for accessible homes
  • strategic planning
  • supporting tenants

The guides are aimed at leaders and practitioners in:

  • housing
  • health and social care
  • tenant engagement teams
  • access officers
  • planning and housing strategy

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