There is an alternative

The Association for Supported Living (ASL) has recognised the challenges that lie ahead in providing meaningful living experiences for people with learning disabilities and demonstrates in this report how people can live purposefully within ordinary homes, integrating closely within the context of their local neighbourhoods.

Evidence of the successful enhancement of individual rights is provided in this report through the stories of ten people who were previously required to live in institutions because their behaviour was deemed to be challenging.

It also provides optimism for the future and exposes the deficits that continue to imbue existent specialist hospital services that perpetuate an institutional model of care delivery.
