Abstract:

This report examines and analyses the possible scope of home modification services for functional impairment within Aboriginal housing. This preliminary paper presents a range of functional improvements with distinct benefits for service providers and tenants alike. The focus on Inclusive Design as a health strategy with cohesive societal effects is a key point of the research. It offers solutions to the problematic segmented nature of service provision and has the potential to resolve a range of maintenance and installation challenges that are present in this sector of the housing market as existent.
