This book examines housing issues, policies and practices relating to disabled people, and explores available choices, opportunities and barriers in the field. The focus is on disabled people's acquisition of, or access to, accommodation, and how individuals experience housing. These include aspects of housing design and construction, the availability and presentation of information on housing options, the economic factors that affect access to housing and the role of ‘actors’ involved in the process of building, selling and allocating housing. This chapter begins by highlighting the current knowledge about the housing circumstances of disabled people, as indicated in the available data. This is followed by an outline of the intentions of the text, some brief notes on terminology and details of the book's contents.
