"I Don't Want to Live for the Day Any More": Visually Impaired People's Access to Support, Housing and Independence
Percival, John; Hanson, Julienne
British Journal of Visual Impairment, v25 n1 p51-67 2007
This article arises from research, funded by the Housing Corporation and Thomas Pocklington Trust, which investigated the housing and support needs and priorities of visually impaired people of working age - a population that has received little public policy attention. It reports on an in-depth study of the circumstances and aspirations of 121 people living in London, which revealed a need for increased opportunities to access information, personal support, employment and housing. The study also discovered strategies that this sample believed would address such need, including better professional collaboration and training, consultation and partnership, and facilitative housing provision. (Contains 4 tables.)
