Routes into housing research report
The difficulties people face when finding somewhere to live
In summer 2011, Mencap carried out a piece of research examining the routes into housing for people with a learning disability.
The aim of the research was to gain insight into the difficulties that people with a learning disability experience when trying to find somewhere to live. The report pulls together our findings from secondary research, interviews with people with a learning disability and family and carers as well as a focus group with a selection of professionals.
Stemming from this, Mencap has made recommendations which they feel could improve routes into housing for people with a learning disability. Read Mencap’s Housing report.
