To be able to live in one’s home with peace, security and dignity is a minimum expectation any of us would have. At iDirect, we are keen that the individuals we support have access to suitable housing when they need it.
Our experience shows that not all landlords are forthcoming to rent suitable accommodation for people with disabilities. However, there are some landlords who are keen to work with our customers and hence iDirect works only with a selected group of likeminded landlords, estate agents, registered social landlords or housing associations to help individuals to find a suitable accommodation.
Over the years, we have helped many individuals whether they are moving out of a residential home or from an unsuitable accommodation etc to find accommodation that is safe, secure and suitable for their needs.
If you wanted to understand how hard it is to navigate the world of private rentals for people with learning disabilities or mental health conditions and how a good landlord is able to provide accommodations making both the individual and their family happy, please listen to this BBC iPM podcast, where iDirect's founder Vinesh was also interviewed.
