Housing Funding

The Government has now published its Policy Statement and Consultation on Funding Supported Housing based on the initial consultation and Communities and Local Government and Work and Pensions select committees joint report on supported housing funding.

Key points include:


- A new funding regime tailored to three main types of housing, sheltered and extra care, short term and long term.

- Sheltered and extra care will continue to be funded in the welfare system but will have a 'Sheltered Rent' set by Government.

- Short term accommodation costs will be funded through a ring-fenced grant to local authorities

- Long-term will remain funded via the Welfare system

- Local Authorities will have to produce a Local Strategic Plan based on a needs assessment with non statutory guidance for short term accommodation grant.

- The new regime will not start until April 2020


The consultations on sheltered and extra care and short terms accommodation will run for 12 weeks ending on the 23rd January 2018. SHiP would like to collate and publish responses if you are able to share them please email us email@shiphousing.org.uk
