Is Supported Living Really Working?

A one day conference on 22nd March 2012, Holiday Inn Bloomsbury, London

Can we confidently say that Supported Living is being delivered effectively? After the scandal at Winterbourne View, can this approach be applied to people with high and complex support needs?

With support from the Department of Health, NDTi has been running the Housing and Social Inclusion project for two years working with seven Local Authorities working to change and improve their housing and support services for people with learning disabilities. This project has generated significant learning and a range of resources on many of the key issues.

This conference offered delegates the opportunity to:

  • Hear from leading national experts about the challenges in delivering cost effective housing and support for people with learning disabilities and some ways of meeting these challenges.
  • Explore the principles behind social inclusion for this group of people and how best to deliver this in practice.
  • In the wake of the Winterbourne View scandal, to look at whether supported housing can be a viable model for people who challenge.
  • Take advantage of a series of workshops focussing on practical tools to support the effective delivery of person-centred housing and support aimed at maximising rights, choice and control.
