Modifying properties for tenants with special requirements
With greater emphasis being placed on supporting vulnerable and disabled people to stay in their own homes rather than enter the care system, housing associations are likely to face an increasing demand for properties that have been suitably modified.
This course provides staff with the knowledge they need to ensure that property adaptations offer value for money; are carried out efficiently and effectively, and are fit-for-purpose.
Candidates are taught about the range of modifications that can be undertaken in a home and the process required to implement the changes. These include:
Assessment of need
Communicating with professionals (carers, therapists, etc)
Communicating with tenants
Preparing and agreeing contracts
Developing a project plan and gaining agreement from tenants
Implementing the project plan
Preparing a maintenance schedule for specialist equipment
Who is it for?
The course is for anyone involved in adapting properties for people with disabilities from managers to contractors; maintenance staff to administrators
