Q: I'm looking to arrange a home swap between my condo in Sydney for wheelchair accessible accommodation in London, England. Do you have any suggestions? Anna
A: Hi Anna! Great to hear that you're looking to arrange a home swap in London. Firstly, to find homes in London, go to the home swap search page and use the filters on the left side of the page to narrow down the results to home swap offers in London (select "Europe" from the Continent menu, 'England' from the Country menu and 'London' from the Regions menu). The search results will display a small wheelchair icon next to any listings where the members have marked that their home has disabled access/special facilites available. You can narrow down the search results to only show homes with disabled access/special facilities by clicking the "Additional options" menu from the left hand search menu and then ticking the "Disabled access / facilities" box (the search results will automatically update).
Note: as Home Base Holidays members decide themselves which facilities are applicable to their own homes, including the disabled access option will usually indicate that, at a minimum, there are no steps and the doors are wide enough in the home to accommodate a wheelchair. However, some homes will have many more (or other) facilities in place for a family member with particular special needs. If you have special requirements that are crucial to make an exchange home suitable, you will need to make these clear when first contacting members to suggest a swap, and then ensure all your needs will be met before agreeing to an exchange.
