Independent research commissioned by my department and the Department for Work and Pensions estimated that at the end of 2015 there were around 47,000 supported housing units across Great Britain for people with learning disabilities. The research was published in 2016 and can be found at: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/572454/rr927-supported-accommodation-review.pdf
