WHAT WE DO
Abode Impact is tackling private housing inequality in the UK with impact investment. We are currently focussed on providing wheelchair accessible housing for private rent.
There is an acute lack of wheelchair accessible homes in the Private Rented Sector (PRS) to meet demand. Our research shows that 4 in 5 of those surveyed currently live in a home that does not fully meet their needs as a wheelchair user. 91% had experienced barriers to renting in the PRS.
We are launching an accessible housing fund for London targeting social impact and financial returns. The fund will purchase wheelchair accessible homes for private rent.
By providing these homes, we can significantly improve the mental, physical and financial wellbeing of wheelchair users and their families.
“This place has given me a chance to get my dignity back. To be able to live as full a life as I can.”
