Applications are now open for phase 2 of the Care and Support Specialised Housing Fund (CASSH).

Specialist housing developers and providers are being invited to bid for a share of an additional fund of up to £155 million to develop accommodation for adults who need support in order to live independently, be it due to old age or disability. This phase of the CASSH fund will prioritise applications for housing for people with learning disabilities or mental health issues.

The Homes and Communities Agency is now accepting bids for schemes across England. The Greater London Authority will shortly be accepting bids within London. This is in addition to money awarded in phase 1 of the fund, which is on track to provide over 4,000 new homes by 2018.

Suitable housing is an important part of making sure that people can remain as independent as possible for as long as possible in a home suited to their needs.
