Abstract
  • This study helps to fill some of the gaps in our information about the costs of the alternative patterns of residential support and about their effectiveness in providing choices for the users. Three contrasting styles of residential provision are evaluated - a local service based on ordinary housing; a long-stay hospital; and three private hostels. The report includes information about how the costs were obtained, and will therefore be useful to anyone currently involved in planning and costing services in their own locality.
