St Mungo’s response to the DWP and DCLG consultation on funding for supported housing

In the context of pressure on local authority budgets, this response to the government’s consultation on funding for supported housing argues that a new funding system for supported housing cannot provide long-term security without acknowledging and addressing the current crisis in support funding.

St Mungo’s urges the government to develop an alternative funding model for transitional supported housing that provides a secure funding basis for both housing and support costs.
