Adapting 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 specifications
- Preparing and agreeing contracts
- Developing a project plan and gaining agreement from tenants
- Implementing the project plan
- Preparing a maintenance schedule for specialist equipment
- Sourcing funding
- Managing budgets.
Who is it for?
The course is for anyone involved in adapting properties for people with special requirements from managers to contractors; maintenance staff to administrators
