In August 2018, the Government published its response to the consultation on the funding model for supported housing, confirming that housing costs will continue to be paid through Housing Benefit.
In this announcement, the Government stated that it wants to ensure quality and value for money across the whole sector, and has confirmed that it wants to work with us to achieve this.
Our first step in this piece of work was to consult with our members, giving housing associations the opportunity to work through the implications of this announcement, and help shape plans for increased transparency and oversight.
We ran a series of workshops with members last year. We appreciate all of the work of our members in feeding into these events and we will update shortly on the outcomes.
In the meantime, if you’d like to discuss our work on the quality of supported housing, please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
