How My Life Has Changed: the experience of moving into supported living

Commissioned by Croydon Adult Services (2009-11) the Research Group deployed life history approaches to work with adults with learning disabilities and explore the experience of moving into Supported Living contexts. This research prompted a detailed response and the recommendations informed development of a business plan and changes to local policy and practice with regard to supporting people with learning disabilities.
