P-05-711 Ensure Disabled People’s Housing Adaption Needs Are Aadequately Met.

This petition was submitted by the Whizz-Kidz Cardiff Ambassador Club, having collected 30 online signatures and 95 paper signatures – a total of 125 signatures.

Text of the Petition

We call on the National Assembly for Wales to urge the Welsh Government to commit to ensuring that disabled people in Wales do not have to wait for more than three years to receive the essential housing adaptions/houses they need and to work with local authorities to ensure staff dealing with adapted housing cases are adequately trained and accountable to ensure individual needs are met.

Additional information

Some of the Young Ambassadors at the Whizz-Kidz Cardiff club have had long struggles to get their housing needs met. There is a lot of inconsistency in dealing with cases and one young person in the group has not been able to live with their parents for over 7 years while they wait for a suitable house. We believe this is unacceptable and with more consistency and accountability when dealing with cases and better staff training the situation can be improved.
