Golden Lane Housing works with people with a learning disability or autistic people to provide supported housing around which they can build their lives. We were established as an independent registered charity by Mencap in 1998 to help tackle the immense challenges that people with a learning disability face in finding a home.

Since our inception we have invested over £122.8 million transforming the lives of over 2,000 people with a wide range of needs in more than 1,300 properties across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Each year we house over 250 people and continually find innovative ways to provide suitable and much needed housing solutions for people with a learning disability or autistic people.
