People with Learning Disabilities Still Lack Security, Choice and Control in Housing

Published: 20/12/11

Two new reports have been published today by the National Development team for Inclusion (NDTi) to help address the problem of people with learning disabilities not getting equal access to housing or having their housing rights respected.

Despite more people with learning disabilities renting their own homes over the last ten years, the reports describe how people very often lack real choice and control over where and how they live. Traditional forms of service provision, such as residential care, still dominate despite people saying they want more choice in housing.
