To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, if he will make it his policy to ensure that that the funding model for sheltered housing will take into account the need for service charges to reflect the actual costs of providing services.
Sheltered and extra care housing plays a vital role in maintaining independence for older people. I am clear, therefore, that our approach for sheltered housing must give providers the certainty they need to maintain current provision and invest in new supply. We have been engaging closely with providers to ensure that we achieve this, whilst recognising the need for proportionate oversight and transparency. We will be responding to our consultation on this shortly.
