Supported Living and Autism

Supported living is where the person with autism is supported to choose where they live, whether anyone lives with them, and who supports them.

The people in supported living are supported to manage their day-to-day lives including having a tenancy agreement, paying their bills and accessing the community.

Supported living can be adapted to the individual needs of the person being supported. Some people will still have high levels of need (24-hour care) while others may need one or two hours a day or a few hours a week.
