Data collection and assessment forms, and methods, have been adapted to be accessible and include questions related to disability inclusion, considering intersectional factors (e.g., gender and age perspective).

Shelter and settlement teams have received training on disability inclusion, and/or include staff members with relevant experience.

Organisations of persons with disabilities, specialised organisations or key community representatives have been contacted and included to inform assessments and analysis activities.

Links have been established with other sectors to conduct joint assessments.

Gender, age and disability-disaggregated data has been collected to inform decision making.

Existing shelter and settlement needs of persons with disabilities have been identified along with barriers that may prevent access to assistance and services.

Persons with disabilities have been consulted on their priorities for shelter and settlements support.

Inclusive budgets that allocate resources to mitigating barriers, promoting accessibility and inclusion and cover the costs of reasonable accommodation have been developed.

Assessment findings have been presented to the community in multiple accessible formats.
