Future funding for supported housing

New supported housing policy, legislation and funding will affect how councils support older people, those recovering from mental illness, those with learning disabilities, those with drug and alcohol misuse issues, veterans, ex-offenders, those who find themselves homeless and those fleeing domestic violence.

It will affect a cross-cutting range of council services, in upper and lower tier councils as well as unitary councils.

The LGA is working with councils and a range of partners to understand the impact of the proposed policy changes, legislation and funding, so that we can influence the outcome of the final product.

On this page you will find briefings, position statements, information on events, links to partner and Government sites.
