We are parents of a 24 year old girl with spastic diplegia, mostly in a wheelchair, bright and funny. She's at 'scollege' in Cheltenham but leaves at the end of the academic year. She wants to stay living in Gloucestershire ideally, but not restricted to there, with friends in a shared house. If we could find like-minded others within a few years of age, it would be easier. Anyone out there?

    Welcome to the community @rupes :) 

    Thanks for posting about this, and for sharing some information about your daughter. Has she enjoyed her time at college? 

    Living in a house share can be a really positive experience, though it can come with its problems of course!

    Has she had a look on Spare Room at all? It can be a good way of finding properties, flatmates, and 'buddy ups'. It also has an option to search for accessible properties.

    Thank you Tori. I should’ve said that she needs assisted accommodation and we were hoping to find others in the same situation so we can group together. I looked at Spare Room but it doesn’t seem suitable for that kind of arrangement. The problem is that our daughter is medium to severe disabled, not severe but not able toanage on her own.
