David Shine­gold ( Let­ters, Au­gust 19) is right to sug­gest that all peo­ple with a learn­ing dis­abil­ity should be given as much con­trol over their lives as pos­si­ble, in­clud­ing a choice over where they live and with whom.

Not­with­stand­ing the cur­rent con­sul­ta­tion re­gard­ing the Ravenswood site, Nor­wood al­ready rou­tinely of­fers those peo­ple who choose it — at Ravenswood and else­where within our ser­vices — the op­por­tu­nity to move from our res­i­den­tial homes into sup­ported liv­ing flats or houses within the com­mu­nity, where we con­tinue to pro­vide the as­sis­tance they need to live an in­de­pen­dent and ful­fill­ing life.
