What is Shared Housing?
Shared housing is a common form of provision for people with learning disabilities in ordinary or purpose built houses shared by a small number of people.
Typically these are shared between 3, 4 or 5 people. Each person has their own bedroom in the house and the rest of the property is communal space used by all the tenants collectively and normally this will include at least a lounge, kitchen and dining area.
An alternative to residential care that empowers you to choose the right amount of support that’s right for you, enabling you to live a more independent lifestyle within a shared house environment.
