Understanding accessibility features

The Summer Foundation and La Trobe University are conducting national surveys of people with a mobility impairment and occupational therapists (OTs) about housing accessibility features.

We are aiming to get input from:

  • People with a mobility impairment (including seniors and people with a mobility-related disability) 
  • OTs who conduct home visits pre-hospital discharge or to assess the suitability of homes for seniors wanting to age in place

The studies involve a brief online survey to understand the importance of accessibility features in new Australia housing.

If you are a person with a mobility impairment or an OT and would like to participate, please follow the links below for more information and to access the survey.
