Housing enquiry

I am looking for some advice in regards to housing. Im 23 year old with cerebral palsy and I use a wheelchair and Kaye walker to get around. Due to my parents moving out I have decided to move out for my independence and further support. I am currently going through the council to find somewhere that is suitable however this complicated as a lot of the properties do not fit my medical needs. However on the bidding scheme of the council there is a property that would be suitable for me but it is age restricted at 60+. I just wanted to know whether anyone had experience with this and if any councils have had instances of this before and what I would need to do to override this age restriction if I can. 
Many thanks,
