Government believes keeping the funding for all supported housing in Housing Benefit, alongside an oversight scheme, will give confidence to the sector and will help us meet our aims of promoting supply, and achieving value for money and positive outcomes for supported housing residents.

Since the announcement in August to maintain Housing Benefit to fund all supported housing, Government has been working closely with the sector including other representative bodies and local authorities to develop options for oversight of supported housing.

We have already met a wide range of stakeholders, including local authorities and providers of supported housing and subsequent engagement is planned in the month of November.
