Aberdeen-based charity launches new Families First project

An Aberdeen-based charity, Disabled Persons Housing Service Aberdeen has launched its new Families First project.

The charity offers information, advice and advocacy to people with a disability and their families and carers about housing options in and around the Aberdeen area.

Since 2003, the organisation has successfully helped to house more than 100 disabled people every year.

The advice given will include how people can access social and private housing, ownership options and shared equity schemes.

Trained staff will visit clients in their homes or in a hospital to provide assistance in completing housing application forms.

The new project will provide advice on care support agencies including social work, occupational therapists and advice on adaptations for their current property.

Jean Morrison, chairwoman of DPHS Aberdeen, said: “Over the last 15 years, the organisation has built a reputation for providing housing options advice to people with disabilities living in Aberdeen city.

“More recently, there has been an increase in the amount of families who have a child or children with a disability and who are inadequately housed for the needs of the child.

“This increase has led us to establish the Families First Project.”
