Sell My House Quickly in Shepherd’s Bush
Sell My House Quickly found another interesting article about Shepherd’s Bush. The housing association that’s doubling the proportion of accessible homes it builds.
One year ago, as parts of the UK started to emerge from the first lockdown, a new campaign launched that called on social landlords to step up to the plate for carers and their families.
With weekly applause still ringing out for paid and unpaid carers across the country, a group of campaigners wanted to make sure the housing sector did more than just make warm gestures.
The Harry’s Pledge campaign, named after six-year-old Harry Charlesworth, who has quadriplegic cerebral palsy, asked housing associations and councils to sign up to four specific commitments.
Harry’s mother, Hayley Charlesworth, this month reiterated her call for organisations to get involved, stating that their actions “could make a real difference to families like mine”.
These pledges asked organisations to think about everything from the accessibility of the homes they build, through to their employment practices and the accessibility of workspaces.
At Inside Housing, we promised to follow the campaign as it progressed, and start to look at what actions organisations were taking as a result of signing up. The aim was partly to look at the extent to which the campaign was leading to real change but, crucially, if it was, to demonstrate to other organisations how they too might approach things.
Today, we look at one of the campaign’s early backers – 5,000-home Greatwell Homes. It has taken a number of different actions since signing up to the pledges, including changing its approach to development to deliver on the call for landlords to “build more fully accessible homes”.
