It covers the steps in the process, the things to think about and where to get the information needed. Welcoming the guide Disability Action Interim Chief Executive, Kevin Doherty said: “Like everyone else people with disabilities, they  want to have a comfortable home that meets their needs.  However, finding appropriate housing and understanding the process can at times be difficult due to a lack of accessible information available. “This guide will benefit people with different disabilities across Northern Ireland in obtaining the relevant information they need to make finding a home an easier process.” The booklet, ‘Advice for people with disabilities on finding a home’ is available at Housing Executive local offices or can be downloaded from our website www.nihe.gov.uk  ]]>
