Supported housing

Find out more about supported housing and the Federation’s work to ensure that these services are understood and sustainably funded.

Supported housing exists to ensure those with support needs can lead a healthy and fulfilling life within their own home and community.

It provides invaluable support for people with disabilities, homeless people, older people, people with mental health problems, people fleeing domestic violence and many others. Supported housing also helps ease the pressure on the NHS and care services.

Despite the many benefits of supported housing, it faces the difficulties of reduced revenue funding, challenging commissioning and partnering structures, and the wider housing crisis.

For information about supported housing under Universal Credit, Benefit Cap and the bedroom tax, please see the welfare reform section.
