Understanding accessible housing options can be challenging at the best of times and when resources aren't available in your own language, this adds another layer of complexity
That’s why the Housing Hub has teamed up with the Speak My Language (Disability) program, to launch two podcast episodes that have been translated in 8 different languages as an initial step towards making our resources more inclusive for our culturally and linguistically diverse community. The translated languages for these podcasts include Vietnamese, Mandarin, Cantonese, Korean, Arabic, French, Hindi and Punjabi.
In these podcasts, Chief Social Enterprise Officer of the Housing Hub, Alecia Rathbone, was interviewed to discuss the topics of ‘Finding an Accessible Home’ and ‘Renting or Selling an Accessible Home’.
This podcast explains how the Housing Hub can support you to find the home that is right for you.
“Having a safe and suitable place to live is an essential part of living well. When someone has a disability, it can be really hard for them or their family to find a home to live in that suits their needs,” Rathbone notes.
The Housing Hub website does the work for you!
The website has a ‘Housing Seeker Profile’ where people with disability can answer a few simple questions about where they want to live and what features they want in their home. This allows the website to notify the seeker of potential matches.
