‘Your Area’ Guides
Are you moving home? Developed by our volunteers, the ‘Your Area’ guides are a helpful resource for everyone trying to find their way around a new area. They contain useful information tailored to each local authority and cover everything from bin collection days to local support services for carers.
The map and list below show all of the local authorities and the highlighted ones have ‘Your Area’ guides. Simply click on your local authority in the list and it will take you to the guide.
We are often involved in research projects offering our unique and expert perspective on the housing needs of disabled people, older adults and members of the Armed Forces community. Read about the research we have been involved with below:

Between social housing allocation policies and the question of who is responsible for getting adaptations fitted to your home, the housing world can seem confusing.
