1. Why should wealthy individuals invest in housing for people with learning disabilities and how can they do it?

About this briefing

This briefing sets out the options for wealthy individuals, High Net Worth Individuals (HNWIs), to invest in property and housing that can be used by people with learning disabilities.

In 2010 there were 619,000 millionaires in the UK, and 85,000 had more than £5m. The number of UK millionaires is set to grow by a third by 2020, according to Ledbury’s forecasts – meaning there will then be 826,000 millionaires in the UK.

Many HNWI's invest in property portfolios. Investing in property for people with learning disabilities has similar advantages to other forms of property investment  but people with learning disabilities have additional  advantages as potential tenants:

  • The majority of this population is likely to have a permanent need for housing to rent;
  • They need housing in all locations in the UK;
  • A mix of types of housing is required;
  • They tend to move infrequently; 
  • They usually receive care and support to live independent lives;
  • There are a number of specialist housing and support provider organisations that can work with property investors that are highly successful at managing property used by people with learning disabilities; many people with learning disabilities remain eligible for state funded welfare including meeting rent and service charge costs
