Inclusion of neighborhoods in Enschede

Arie Fokkink

Andrei is a 23-year-old boy and is bound by a wheelchair due to multiple disabilities. He would like people like him (limited, 18-65 years) to be able to live inclusive in a neighborhood. And he would love to live in a neighborhood where it is 'normal' to be part of that neighborhood.

How inclusive are the housing functions in the neighborhoods of Enschede? To what extent is there room for an inclusive form of living?

Over this one challenge

Arie Fokkink

The first question is how inclusive the neighborhoods in Enschede are, and how inclusive are the residential functions in these neighborhoods? Can an inclusive form of housing (for which the starting program of requirements is available) find a place in the neighborhood?

This issue is presented to second-year Saxion students of HBO Nursing study route Health and Technology (G&T) as a project, with a duration of 20 weeks.

The ultimate goal of this project is to offer the physically handicapped a tailor-made living environment. To this end, suitable residential locations must be developed, but we want to make the neighborhoods in Enschede around those residential locations more inclusive.
