Finding our own way home – a ‘big’ conversation


With COVID shining a spotlight into the health and social care inequalities faced by people with a learning disability and/or autism, this important new report, jointly written by the Housing LIN and Learning Disability England (LDE), outlines the key results from research conducted into the housing opportunities and blockages for people with a learning disability and/or autism. 

Using qualitative techniques to gain an insight into people’s lived experiences, the research provides the most comprehensive picture to date of their housing needs and aspirations and is essential reading for those wanting to fund, commission, design and/or deliver a better range of independent living choices for people with a learning disability.  

Key Housing LIN/LDE findings are segmented into:

  • What is working well at the moment
  • What is getting in the way of people getting the home they need and want?
  • What are some of the possible solutions
