Valuing People Now and Housing for People with Learning Disabilities

On 19 January 2009, the Department of Health launched a cross-government strategy, Valuing People Now - a new three year strategy for people with learning disabilities.

This Housing LIN Briefing No27 summarises key sections and issues arising from the Strategy and its Delivery Plan. The focus is on housing with care and support, and independent living. The Briefing is written for commissioners and providers of

  • housing (social and private, for rent and home ownership)
  • support and care services for tenants and home owners, and
  • specialised housing, including supported and extra care housing.
