                The Housing Plan
We said                           We did
• Northamptonshire will have
  a co-produced housing plan
  to support people to meet
  their housing needs by
  October 2010.
• People with learning
  disabilities, including young
  people and their family
  carers will have led the
  development of the plan.
We want to have real choice, have
access to the same housing as other
people, find information we
understand & get support to help us
create our dreams. We want to jointly
lead on this in a planned way

         The Vision
This is what the Housing Plan says...
• Experience real choice about how & where we
• Have the same range of options as others do
• Find accessible information about our housing
  options, the rules & our responsibilities
