This chapter is concerned with supported housing options for people with disabilities. A broad scope of issues is covered by the heading of disability, including both mental and physical health and illness, learning disability, physical impairment and disability. The chapter follows a similar structure to the previous two with a focus on policy discourses such as the social model of disability, independent living and normalization, followed by a description of policy in each of Britain and Sweden. There follows an evaluation of the forms of supported housing most used for disabled people.
