FamilyHub has been created by Mencap as an online community for parents, carers and people with a learning disability.
It’s a community that connects parents who have a child/children with a learning disability, to share your experiences, triumphs and challenges, and to offer support and guidance to others whose family situation is similar to your own.
Every month there’s an expert giving advice about a chosen topic. Throughout October, Golden Lane Housing is answering people’s questions about housing matters.
“Hi, my name is Rod and I’m head of housing at Golden Lane Housing.
Golden Lane Housing is one of the UK’s leading social housing landlords for people with a learning disability, and currently provides homes for over 1,700 people across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
I’ve personally been involved in providing housing advice, solutions and services for people with a learning disability and their families for over 15 years.
I’m here throughout October to answer your questions around housing matters – which might include:
– housing law and tenancies
– housing benefit
– housing options
I look forward to reading your questions and I hope to provide some useful information.”
