Designing accessible, safe, and enjoyable spaces for autistic adults who are precariously housed or homeless

Project Details


Emerging research suggests autism is disproportionately overrepresented in homeless populations and autistic narratives of homelessness have highlighted significant barriers to service access and engagement. A key concern relates to the unsuitability of accommodation provision in the homelessness sector, particularly in consideration of the sensory processing and social differences associated with autism.

This project aims to create a dialogue on what accessible, safe, and enjoyable accommodation provision in the homelessness/supported housing sector looks like for autistic people. This project aims to challenge normative and typical assumptions about how supported housing provision is developed and supplied. Autistic people will be directly involved in designing what these spaces could look like, with an artist helping to develop the visualisation of these ideas.
