HOUSING ACCESS & LAND TENURE SURVEY for Vulnerable Groups - This is an ANONYMOUS survey.
Habitat for Humanity Trinidad and Tobago (Habitat Trinidad and Tobago) is an organisation registered as a non-governmental nonprofit organisation under the laws of Trinidad and Tobago. Habitat Trinidad and Tobago is committed to making decent shelter a matter of social conscience and national action in Trinidad and Tobago. We have helped thousands of Trinbagonians construct, rehabilitate or preserve their homes since 1997 and we support a variety of funding models that enable families with limited resources to make needed improvements on their homes as their time and resources allow as well as supporting home owners in developing their shelter solution, Habitat Trinidad and Tobago also provides training in financial management, technical and life skills, housing initiatives and disaster risk reduction programmes.
Habitat Trinidad and Tobago has entered into a contract with the Caribbean Policy Development Centre (CPDC) to foster positive social change in the lives of persons living with HIV and AIDS, persons with disabilities and persons who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgender and/or Intersex (LGBTI).
* What are we doing? *
This survey is being conducted to capture a detailed picture of housing and shelter needs among disabled people, people living with HIV/AIDS and gender communities in Trinidad & Tobago. We will be using the findings to influence and develop local policies and services to eliminate obstacles to housing and land tenure access, and to increase the participation in the planning, implementation and monitoring of public policy around access to land and housing by organisations representing these groups. The results of the survey will be shared with Civil Society Organisations and public sector providers.
* What we are trying to measure in this survey? *
We want to identify some of the challenges that these vulnerable groups face in finding safe, decent and affordable places to live. In particular, we would like to identify barriers in accessing services, and any gaps in current service provision. This survey is completely anonymous. But we will be using the summarised information we collect to press for improvements in housing access. The survey contains questions about who you are, the housing you live in now and how you feel about access to housing in your area. We are asking lots of questions to get a detailed picture that looks at lots of different aspects of life for vulnerable groups in our country.
* What will we do with the information? *
Our report and analysis of the data will be published on the Internet and in partnership with Civil Society and organisations supporting the vulnerable groups. We will share the findings with local authorities and other public sector service providers. Following this survey we will be conducting focus groups to add to the information we collect. If you are interested in taking part in the focus groups please email
