The local authority insight survey gathers feedback from local authority benefit managers on topics of interest to the Department for Work and Pensions.
Wave 35 of the survey looked at:
- long-term supported accommodation
- the processes and roles of local authority teams in managing cost-control specific to long-term supported accommodation and specialised supported accommodation
The survey findings confirm and expand upon findings of previous government and third sector reviews into the provision of long-term supported accommodation and specialised supported accommodation.
The survey follows a consultation on short-term supported accommodation and sheltered accommodation.
