Developing cost effective housing options for people with learning disabilities across the East Midlands

This Good Practice Case Study describes a housing solutions programme led by the Department of Health East Midlands, sponsored by the East Midlands Joint Improvement Partnership and co-funded by the Department of Health East Midlands and each Council, which gained unanimous support from all nine local authorities to reduce reliance on residential care for people with learning disabilities.

The programme was facilitated by the East Midlands Improvement and Efficiency Partnership (EM IEP), which jointly funded a Derbyshire County Council project called 'Getting a Home of my Own.'
