Research to understand how learning disability housing support is structured across Welsh local authorities, including what is funded and why.

The overarching findings were:

  • there is inconsistencies in how learning disability housing support is funded across Wales
  • participating local authorities are confident they were commissioning eligible housing related support work working towards it
  • some local authorities are still dependent on Supporting People Grant funding to help fund supported living or adult placement schemes
  • spend is impacted by historical Supporting People settlements and the pace of change since 2013 (and the introduction of new Supporting People Grant Guidance)
  • based on the information collected during this research, it is mostly fixed support that is funded (86%) with 13% of spend relating to floating support
