The lives of eight Auckland accessible rental tenants and their families are being changed for the better with help from a "small but mighty" Northland housing trust. The Whangarei Accessible Housing Trust has just built its first set of accessible homes in Takanini. The homes are purpose built to accommodate people with disabilities, including blogger and university student Jan Butterworth, who has been on the hunt for a suitable property for four years. Lisa Thompson paid a visit to Jan a few days before her move and discovered why her new home is set to transform her life.
