RCOT SS - Housing

We promote the role of occupational therapy in the field of accessible housing and independent living.

RCOT Specialist Section - Housing provides a forum for occupational therapists and occupational therapy staff that have an interest in housing, inclusive design and accessible home environments.

We work closely with other related organisations and professionals with a similar interest. We advocate for improved standards of housing for older and disabled people. We work to influence consultations at both national and local level regarding housing and the built environment.
If you find the repository resources useful, why not consider becoming a RCOT SS - Housing member to access numerous additional benefits?
