The research estimates the scale, scope and cost of the supported housing sector in Great Britain.
This research was commissioned to improve the evidence we have about supported housing, where data about the scale and scope of the sector has not been collected in England and Scotland since 2009. Supported housing is any housing scheme where housing, support and sometimes care services are provided to help people to live as independently as possible in the community.
The research also helps us to understand how supported housing is commissioned and monitored in Great Britain.
The evidence supports a consultation on the implementation of the new funding model for supported housing published on 21 November 2016.
