Details

In this session we will discuss how we can best support students and tenants with disabilities, long-term illnesses and mental health conditions. We will explore how we can best adapt our approach to ensure that we support each individual tenant, based on their individual circumstances and needs.

We will delve into some of the common limitations relating to this such as data sharing restrictions and getting tenants engaged with support.
