    Transhouse, a charity in Oswestry are trying to redress this issue ,they have properties for sci people to live in on a temporary basis while the person is sorting permanent housing or having their home adapted.

    There are a number of organisations working across the UK in response to the massive shortage of wheelchair accessible properties in the country. Aspire and Transhouse have a positive relationship, regularly sharing ideas and information, and we are well aware of their work in Oswestry. Although the models of provision that the two organisations use differ, we’ve heard many positive things from Transhouse tenants over the years and we look forward to working with the team at Transhouse just as much in the future.

    Aspire is the only organisation looking specifically at housing options for spinally injured people across the UK. Yet for all our work, and that of Transhouse and the many other specialist housing providers and charities, far too many people leave hospital and end up living in totally inappropriate accommodation. We’re all working to change this.
