Funding for supported housing
We are very pleased to hear the recent announcement from the government that housing costs for all supported housing, sheltered and extra care will remain in the social security system. It ends plans to fund short-term accommodation (eg women’s refuges) through council grants and means that thousands of people can continue to receive the money they need without worrying how they will manage financially.
This strengthens our commitment to helping people meet their housing needs.
