PLINTH (Parent Led INitiative Towards Housing

Name PLINTH (Parent Led INitiative Towards Housing
Sector Housing
Service Description Who will care when parents are no longer well enough? What happens when we die? Our special needs offspring are vulnerable. According to the Mencap report "The Housing Time Bomb", there are 29,000 people with a learning disability in Britain living with parents over the age of 70. Then there are those of us who are younger, with young people who have been taught at school to expect to be independent and to have the necessary skills. Local authorities are not planning to provide enough housing to meet this need and as the report says, there is a time bomb waiting to go off. Help us press local housing authorities to recognise the needs of our 'children'. We do not want to see the large hospital-type institution brought back as the only option to house such large numbers of vulnerable adults!
