Whether looking to move or remain in your own home there are a number of housing options available to people with disabilities or long term health issues who require accessible housing.
If you have specific needs such as level access or a lift you will need to be assessed by Your Homes Newcastle's Health Assessment Team. They will consider your needs and provide a medical recommendation which will detail what type of property or adaptations you need. You may also qualify for a priority banding if your current property is putting you at risk of harm. You can find more information about this on the Priority Bands page.
The majority of our adapted and accessible homes are advertised on Newcastle Homes. The property advert will include information about the property such as it it is level access, if it is suitable for wheelchair users, if there is a lift etc.
If you have any questions about an advertised property please Contact Us.
If your home no longer meets your needs it may be possible to adapt your property to meet your needs.
