Housing support and the rights of people with learning difficulties

Jean Collins

Housing and support services which interlock are less likely to respect the rights of people with learning difficulties as citizens than where the two functions are clearly separated, according to recent research by Jean Collins of Values Into Action.

She also reports that people are usually dependent on the service agencies own commitment to their rights as citizens. The study is based on detailed interviews with users and staff in 11 supported housing arrangements in England and Wales.
