The council defines vulnerability as those whose ability to live independently is at risk due to an array of circumstances and needs. This includes residents who require additional care and support services both in general needs and specialist housing, regardless of age. Vulnerability is not necessarily permanent; people’s needs change over time. The Key Guarantees embed within them commitments to ensure that those with disabilities and special needs are given the extra help that they require enabling them to move home. In progressing estate regeneration projects, the Housing Regeneration team will abide by the council’s approach to equalities, which are embedded in the Lambeth Borough Plan. The Housing Regeneration Team will ensure that housing needs assessments will be carried out for all affected households and the council’s equalities duties will be embedded in all decision making throughout an estate regeneration project. Equality Impacts Assessments will be assessed at key stages.
