COT SS - Housing

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

COT 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 COTSS-Housing member to access numerous additional benefits?


Home adaptations: the care act 2014 and related provision across the United Kingdom

UK Electronic Repositories of Law and Policy

Comprehensive electronic repositories of legislation and policy relating to housing and related social care are now operational for England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Special thanks are due to the regional representatives, other members of the National Executive and Carl Miller at the COT web-team who have spent much time and expertise developing these resources with the web coordinator.
These resources will offer members easy and systematic access to original documents. It is a valuable resource for policy and service development/delivery. The repository will also help with clarification of the legal and policy parameters for Occupational Therapy practice when combined with appropriate professional guidance.
The repository for England, for example contains 73 electronic links to nine key Departments and Agencies. There is also a good practice section on innovative housing design practice and the accessible housing register in London.
