Episode 8 – Downs syndrome and independent living

In this episode of Equality in Housing, we are delighted to be speaking with James Carter and Liz Crowter about what it means to live independently and some of the challenges that James and his mother-in-law Liz have faced in trying to make this happen. James lives with his partner Heidi, and both have Down’s Syndrome. Following on from the Down’s Syndrome Act 2022, which will have implications for housing providers, we wanted to hear first-hand about the importance of independent living and what the housing sector can do to make this happen for more people.
