One of the Government's National Indicators (NI 145) asks about the sort of place people with learning disabilities were living in when they last had a review with their social worker. Types of place which are satisfactory and in which the person can stay as long as they want are called 'stable accommodation'. Other types of place are called 'unstable accommodation'. You can see a list of the types of accommodation considered as stable and unstable by clicking here.
For each local authority, the indicator shows the percentage of people with learning disabilities known to be living in stable accommodation. The maps show this for 2008/9 and for 2009/10. The numbers are quite badly incomplete. So in addition to these maps we have shown a map of the percentage the local authority did not know about.
Two categories of unstable accommodation are particularly worrying.
The number of people in these categories is too small to map, and in many cases there are none. However we have drawn maps showing which local authorities reported having any people in these categories.
