Home Ownership: Who Benefits?

Publish date: 7th October 2019

This report is of special interest to us as we were priviledged to have been able to help one of those abused to buy a home of his own, somewhere he is now living happily and, most importantly of all, safely. You can read the full report here.

We echo the words of Alison Miller, Head of the Abuse Team at Leigh Day (the law firm that represented victims of abuse and their families) who, commenting on the care homes that have now been closed, noted that 'these outdated models of care create environments where individual human rights are too easily breached, often without scrutiny, and with devastating consequences'. 

Of course HOLD (Home Ownership for people with Long-term Disabilities) enables people to live close to family and friends (and the local community too) who can then check in regularly to see how they are plus, by separating housing from care, any provider who fails to look after the homeowner properly can simply be replaced. Only HOLD truly gives people with disabilities this level of protection, control and independence.
