Tackling private housing inequality in the UK with commercial solutions.
Abode Impact has identified an acute lack of wheelchair accessible homes for rent to meet demand in the UK. This failure is strongest in the Private Rented Sector (PRS), with 1 in 3 people disabled people living in unsuitable accommodation in this tenure. (European Human Rights Commission, 2018). Without a suitable home, wheelchair users and their families face emotional, financial and physical distress. This prevents them from leading independent lives.
To tackle this, Abode Impact is launching the UK’s first accessible housing fund dedicated to providing wheelchair accessible homes for private rent.
Pineapple partnered with founders, Eleanor Bowden and David Toplas, to support the launch of this initiative by offering social impact research, marketing and fundraising services.
