NHS Guide To Learning Disability Housing Choices

NHS England’s Learning Disability and Autism programme has been working with the Housing Associations’ Charitable Trust (HACT) to develop a flexible set of hospital to home discharge resources, for people with a learning disability and autistic people, intended to be adapted to suit local needs and circumstances.

Local partners in Integrated Care Systems can use these resources to work together to ensure that planning for people’s future housing needs starts from as early as possible after admission to hospital, and is undertaken in a fully joined up way, in close co-production with the person, and any family or loved ones.

The housing how to guide produced by Learning Disability England gives people and their families access to information on rights and choices and will help them plan for what kind of housing is right for them and their family. Please share this useful resource with people and families you are supporting.
