Special needs housing

We can offer help and advice to people with a disability who may need wheelchair accessible housing or housing which has been adapted to meet their needs.

We will carry out medical assessments for disabled housing register applicants and tenants who wish to transfer. Medical priority is awarded, and recommendations made for the type of property that is suitable. Vulnerability advice is given for homeless applicants.

If you or a member of your household has reduced mobility or other health problem, then the please complete the housing health assessment form.

We work with colleagues in health and social services to ensure a coordinated response is made to those with health, disability or support needs.

Bidding for suitable properties

The information in ‘Choice Homes’ and on the East London Lettings Company website includes floor level, access information and adaptations, so applicants can bid appropriately, and we encourage applicants to bid for suitable properties. Visit the Hackney Choice page to find out how to bid for properties.
