The measure is intended to improve outcomes for adults with a learning disability by demonstrating the proportion in stable and appropriate accommodation. The nature of accommodation for people with a learning disability has a strong impact on their safety and overall quality of life and the risk of social exclusion.
The proportion of adults with learning disabilities who live in stable and appropriate accommodation for the year to March 2021 (annual) was 85.6%. Performance is better than the target of 84%.
The team have continued to work improving the number of people with learning disabilities living at home or with family and this is reflected in an increase in our performance on the previous year by 0.31% with the long-term trend remaining positive. The remaining people supported reside in Residential/Nursing care due to their high level physical/learning disability which best suits their needs at this point in time.
The latest available comparator data for year ending March 2020 shows that performance remains better than - England 77.3%, West Midlands 73.6% and statistical neighbours 79.4%.
