Consultation description

This consultation seeks views on the government’s plans for a new housing costs funding model for supported housing as well as views on how funding for emergency and short term placements should work. It covers the following areas:

  • devolved top-up funding to local authorities in England
  • funding for emergency and short term supported housing placements across Great Britain.

Evidence review

The government has published a consultation on the implementation of the new funding model for supported housing. At the same time the government has published the evidence review of supported accommodation in Great Britain.

The review was jointly commissioned by the Department for Work and Pensions and the Department for Communities and Local Government at the end of 2015 and provides a helpful insight into the estimated scale, scope and cost of the sector which respondents may find useful in responding to consultation.
