Background: Concern has been expressed repeatedly about the cost and quality of residential placements for adults with learning disabilities and additional needs.

Conclusions Young, male adults with learning disability, challenging behaviour and ? or autism continue to receive very high cost residential support, often in out-of-area residential care. There remains limited evidence of plans to redirect resources to more local service developments.
