What we do
Abode Impact was created to deliver positive social impact for wheelchair users, their families and society by promoting the provision of high quality, accessible homes in the UK Private Rented Sector.
The Equality and Human Rights Commission in 2018 stated that 1 in 3 disabled people living in private rented homes were in unsuitable accommodation. Wheelchair users in unsuitable accommodation are four times more likely to be unemployed and needlessly require support from local government or their families, resulting in economic costs and social stress.
We don't believe it has to be this way. Backed by years of detailed research and collaboration with specialist organisations, landlords, investors and most importantly wheelchair users, we believe that accessible homes can form part of any housing portfolio, deliver good financial returns to investor stakeholders and create social value for tenants, their families and the community.
To be a leading operator of accessible housing in key locations across the UK, either directly owned by us or by one of our partners.
To develop the UK's leading database of both accessible homes and tenants requiring them, to ensure more people can find the home that they love.
To advise existing large corporate landlords how best to include accessible housing within their mix of properties.
