Locked Out housing report launches in parliament
The Muscular Dystrophy Campaign Trailblazers are launching a report this afternoon on housing at the All Party Parliamentary Group for Young Disabled People. The Locked Out report addresses the obstacles young disabled people find in accessing suitable housing and living independently.
The report is the result of findings taken from a survey of 200 young disabled people and 12 focus group meetings across the UK over a period of nine months. It reveals that many young disabled people believe that the property sector and independent living services regularly fail to deliver a good or efficient service for them.
The All Party Parliamentary Group and the Trailblazers will discuss the report, highlight the key findings and ask questions of an expert panel. Find out more about the report at the Trailblazers website.
