'Operation Sign Up' campaign to highlight accesible housing
WHEELCHAIR USERS in Wexford are being encouraged to ' sign up' to a new campaign which is aimed at highlighting the importance of registering for accessible, affordable, social housing.
'Operation Sign Up' was officially launched in Wexford at Lochrann House last Tuesday.
At the launch IWA members were told that the housing requirements of people with disabilities has been under represented and there is a real demand for social housing amongst people with disabilities.
Operation Sign Up aims to encourage as many individuals as possible to register their need for accessible, affordable and appropriate accommodation with their local council. The IWA housing initiative includes a new housing website www.iwa.ie/house which provides a step-by-step guide to applying for social housing.
