This webinar will present the results of the research and we will hear about why meeting the need for supported housing is an important goal to commit to in this election year, as well as how to secure commitment to that goal. 

As we approach the next general election, the National Housing Federation (NHF) is calling on whichever party or combination of parties forms the next government to put in place a long-term plan for housing. Such a plan will have to include making sure that there is sufficient supported housing available to meet the needs of the population. 

We know that there is not enough supported housing to meet demand and this is likely to get worse without decisive action to increase the supply of supported housing. We need to meet demand for supported housing because it has a positive effect on people’s health and wellbeing, as part of a long-term plan for housing.  

The NHF have commissioned Altair Ltd to carry out research into the need for supported housing. This includes how much supported housing is needed for older people and for working-age people, and an assessment of costs, both in terms of capital investment for construction, and in terms of likely annualised support costs (without which supported housing cannot function).
