Our response to the recent supported housing announcement

In a recent announcement the Government said that all supported housing funding will continue to be covered by the welfare system.

We’re really pleased by this decision. We know our supported living options make a huge difference to people’s lives. We and the wider sector had been concerned the Government was set to change how this worked. Any changes could have affected hundreds of mhs customers who use our support homes and services, many of whom are vulnerable.

In 2017-18 we housed 557 people in supported accommodation. We have 20 supported living schemes, two foyers for young people, as well as various support services.
Our supported housing options allow people to continue living as independently as possible.

This is a hugely welcome decision for us and gives our residents assurance and security they’ll continue to receive the support they need.
