The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) and NHS England are supporting partnerships with local housing providers and other stakeholders to develop, remodel and adapt accommodation for people with a learning disability, autism or both.

 

This includes a substantial investment in capital grants to support housing delivery. DHSC commissioned a rapid scoping study to draw learning from the projects during their implementation, to inform future housing and accommodation interventions and to identify and share good practice. 

The scoping study was undertaken by Dr Mark Bevan (Centre for Housing Policy), Dr Katherine Graham (Department of Social Policy and Social Work), and Dr Ana Castro and Professor Karen Bloor (Department of Health Sciences).
