The Real Tenancy Test

Posted: 06/01/15

'The Real Tenancy Test' has been written to help people providing housing and support services for people with learning disabilities. It was originally written in 2010 and was updated in 2015.

It is a simple test, based on a small number of questions, to help review whether services called supported living are really giving people their housing rights and helping them to live how they want to. It describes important things to consider when planning housing and tenancies for people, including when to use different types of tenancies and how to handle issues of capacity.

The Real Tenancy Test and supporting information for people with learning disabilities can be downloaded from the links on the right.
