Living in a safe and secure home is as important for people with a learning disability as it is for everyone else.

Finding a place to live is an important part of living independently, but there are often challenges to this happening.

We have produced an  easy read guide, which explain the main issues that you might face.

If you have a learning disability, you can download and read the guide below to help you make decisions on the issues that matter to you.

If you are a family member or carer of someone with a learning disability you can also use the guide by downloading or printing it off and going through it together with the person you support.

Read our housing report

Take a look at our report based on research around Specialised Supported Housing (SSH) for people with a learning disability.

We've created this report to better understand the scale, nature and cost of SSH, draw on examples of good practice and to provide evidence to inform the debate around funding for supported housing in the future.

The report presents findings from research carried out by Housing LIN (Learning and Inclusion Network) into the scope and scale of the SSH sector.
