Draft Learning Disabilities Accommodation Strategy

Please note that this consultation has now closed

All local authorities with strategic housing responsibilities need to plan to meet the housing needs of local residents.  The Draft Learning Disabilities Accommodation Strategy sets out the Council’s aims in meeting the accommodation needs of people with learning disabilities.

 

The Housing Strategy 2012-2017 committed the Council to preparing an accommodation strategy for vulnerable groups. This document forms part of that overarching Care and Support Accommodation Strategy.  Further Strategies will be drafted focusing on other vulnerable groups including mental health.

 

There are varying accommodation needs for people with learning disabilities with some needing help/support to maintain independent living whereas others require more intensive care in a residential/care home.

 

A consultation draft of the revised document is now available and your comments are invited.
