Disabled in private house needs a flat in Special needs, Disability etc Posted April 5, 2016 I am posting on behalf of my auntie who is disabled. She is currently in a private rented house that has very steep stairs upto the bathroom and down to the kitchen. A lot of the time she has to ask family members to help with aid as she cannot move around a lot due to considerable pain she in. She is on a bidding system with Leeds council but has been a long process and has not gotten anywhere with it. I am distrusted by the way she has been treated left almost to bid every week is effecting her mental health and has no support saying she is in a house so isn't in dire need of rehousing. Not only that there has been robberies in the area, she had an attempted break in and now she fears living in her home she doesn't leave the house. Not to boast but my auntie is a genuinely lovely person and she doesn't deserve to live like this I just wish she could have the right help to be happy and live comfortably.
