Abstract
This paper examines the relationships between housing and care for younger and older adults with disabilities. The real strength of this study is the provision of a national overview of housing as a key issue across and between these policy areas. The significance of the intersections between housing, and care is accentuated by population ageing, rising expectations amongst consumer groups, and constraints on government expenditure. Adults with disabilities often face multiple vulnerabilities, including limited incomes and social support, and therefore require integrated support delivered to a secure home base.
