Cadwyn Housing Association Ltd
The Association played a lead role in the initial pilot for the Cardiff Accessible Homes Project. The project has developed a Housing Register specifically for people with physical impairment who are seeking to move to alternative accommodation.
Initial grant funding from the Assembly Government enabled a partnership of housing, social care, health and voluntary agencies in the city of Cardiff to be established. The partnership identified the housing needs and preferences of clients, and developed a database of existing adapted properties across all social landlords in Cardiff and a 'Matching' Process to allocate adapted properties. The outcome for clients is an improvement in the options available to those in unsuitable accommodation. For landlords, there has been an improvement in letting times and existing adapted properties are being used more effectively. By identifying existing, suitably adapted dwellings and matching them with a client in need, the project maximised the use of existing resources. The project provided a database of the needs of people with physical disabilities, which informed provision at a strategic level.
