Specialised supported housing for people with a learning disability

A report from mental health charity Mencap estimates that the specialised supported housing sector is more than double the size of previous estimates and that demand is rising.

The research also finds that living independently with support in the community has a positive impact on wellbeing for people with a learning disability. Specialised supported housing is an alternative for people with complex needs who might otherwise have lived in residential care or secure accommodation.
