Funds to improve housing for people with learning disabilities
In 2016, as part of the Transforming Care programme, the Department established a £25 million capital fund for housing and technology to support people with a learning disability to live as independently as possible with the right care and support. Funding was awarded to 25 separate projects in 2016/17 and 2017/18. The funding could be used for adaptations to existing accommodation and was aimed at those receiving support for their learning disability and was not restricted to people who were in hospital. The University of York has published a rapid review of the projects for DHSC to inform future housing and accommodation interventions and to identify best practice.
