In his Ministerial Statement to the House of Commons on 15th September 2016 the Secretary of State confirmed that the new funding model will ensure that the supported housing sector will be funded at the same level it would have otherwise been in 2019/20, taking into account the effect of Government policy on social sector rents.

A joint DWP/DCLG twelve week consultation on supported housing ended on 13 February. This was aimed at supported housing commissioners and providers, developers and investors, residents and those who represent their views. Almost 600 responses have been received. We will work with the sector using the feedback from the consultation to consider our wider strategic goals, such as responding to the expected growing future demand and ensuring we maintain people’s independence.
