The Housing Master Class was developed in partnership with Aspire, and aims to explain the processes by which social housing is allocated and how Disabled Facilities Grants are awarded. The course helps participants understand their own access needs and covers topics such as:
By thinking about their specific needs, and understanding the processes involved in accessing housing and funding adaptations, participants will be empowered with knowledge that will hopefully lead to them going home sooner and minimise the amount of time spent in interim accommodation, or will help them improve their current housing situation if they have already been discharged.
Each training day runs 10.30am to 4.00pm (approx) and is open to spinal cord injured people, their family members and carers as well as SCIC staff and other health professionals or other people working or with an interest in the field of spinal cord injury. We actively encourage family members to attend the Master Classes, and they can also do so on behalf of their SCI relative. The courses are FREE to attend for most people, although corporate delegates will be charged £100 + VAT. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
