Included by design: a national strategy for accessible housing for all

National Housing Conference, November 2003

Author: Herd, D., Ward, M., Seeger, B.
Type: Conference Paper
Year: 2003

Abstract:

In the first half of the 21st century there will be the increase in older people and people with a disability who live in private houses in the Australian community. The Australian Network for Universal Housing Design (ANUHD) argues in this paper that housing designs will need some inexpensive but important changes to cope with demographic change. With a greater number of older people and people with a disability actively participating in their communities, there is a need to examine how people are prevented from full participation, and to remove barriers wherever they occur.
