‘Not as connected with people as they want to be’ - Optimising outcomes for people with intellectual disabilities in supported living arrangements.

Little evidence exists about outcomes of supported living or the support arrangements that make it successful. Increased knowledge about the contributing factors to good quality of life outcomes for people who live in supported living arrangements will be important to the National Disability Insurance Agency in making individualised funding decisions, to the disability sector in developing services and necessary practice skills, and to people with intellectual disability and their families in making choices about housing and support options.

The study aimed to develop knowledge about the configuration of support arrangements and social contexts that optimise the success of supported living arrangements and quality of life for service users with intellectual disability.
