Lifetime homes

 The Lifetime Homes Standard is the result of careful study and research. The design Criteria forming the Standard relate to interior and exterior features of
the home.

There are a total of 16 design Criteria. Each is valuable in itself, but to achieve the Lifetime Homes Standard a dwelling must incorporate all relevant Criteria.

Wheelchair accessibility was chosen as the benchmark for a good space requirement. Good space requirements also help many other people – for example, parents with pushchairs and small children, or people carrying bags
of shopping. Good accessibility helps everyone, not just people who use wheelchairs.
