Independent living means having your own place to live. Finding that place isn’t always easy. In this episode Julia, a landlord who is renting out a property to young people with additional needs, tells us why. We hear that finding a place to rent requires perseverance and sometimes a dose of optimism. For the landlord, it requires thinking more about the person and less about their credit score. For a parent, there are strategies for making it easier for a young person with additional needs to find a place to live in the private rental sector. If you’re a landlord already, hear why renting out to young people with additional needs makes financial sense as well as social sense.
