Abstract

At present, approximately £2,000 million a year is spent by Local Authority Personal Social Services (PSS) and the NHS in England to support people with learning disabilities (Department of Health and Office of Population Censuses and Surveys, 1995). A significant proportion of these resources are devoted to providing residential supports. In 1992/3, for example, PSS net expenditure on residential supports for people with learning disabilities amounted to £255 million, representing 36% of the total PSS net expenditure on people with learning disabilities.
