    Thanks for the warm welcome. I'd welcome any advice on getting accommodation for a young man with statemented ADHD and almost certainly autism to some degree. He has recently given thousands of pounds to 'friends' and although he can cope with some things (he has an 8-hour contract with a supermarket), he obviously needs a lot of support if he is to live independently in any sense. Eg. he is still unable to cut his own toe nails but can tell you the names of everyone, and their job title, at his place of work.

    Hi @JonHare, I will move this discussion into the housing section on the community and hope someone can advise. At Scope we do not have any particular service that looks at housing, but I hope the experiences of others can help. It may also be worth contacting Shelter as they may have more information that can help you during this time. Please do not hesitate to be in touch if you need any further information.
