Housing for people with a learning disability or autistic people

Housing arrangements for people with a learning disability and autistic people have come a long way since the 1960s, when people were housed in institutions that kept them apart from the rest of society. This is a result of national government and local authorities working together with people with a learning disability and their families to move towards a system founded on the principle of choice and control, personalised services and independent living.

Building Safety Bill, Second Reading, House of Lords, 2 February 2022

Delivery of the new building safety regime is dependent on council building control and the fire service. The funding to achieve the necessary increase in skills and capacity has not yet been agreed and we are concerned that it may be inadequate. The LGA asks that new funding is administered to councils and fire services to deliver this new work.
