In-House Funding Supported Housing



The Government is planning to change the way in which Supported Housing is funded with separate arrangements for sheltered housing, short-term supported housing and long-term supported housing. In future, landlords will be expected to set rents and service charges in sheltered housing based on a new ‘sheltered rent’ set by government that will also be used, in effect, to cap housing benefit and the housing element of universal credit. Short-term supported housing will be funded through a new locally administered grant. Long-term supported housing will be funded largely as it is now. The Government states that it is committed to protecting and boosting the supply of supported housing and ensuring it provides value for money and works for those who use it as well as those who pay for it. The government made a policy statement and started a consultation in October 2017.


This seminar will explain and examine the government’s proposals and their implications for local authorities, housing associations and their tenants. This will include local authorities in their commissioning and provider roles.

Who Should Attend?

It is designed for people who are not experts in housing finance, but who understand the basics. It is suitable for councillors, board members, housing managers, tenant representatives, finance staff and others with an interest in the future funding of supported housing.


The session will consider the following questions:

  • What is the Government trying to achieve?
  • What will be the implications of the new sheltered housing rent for sheltered and extra care housing?
  • How will the locally administered budgets for short-term supported housing work?
  • What are the Financial Opportunities and Threats for Supported Housing in Local Authorities and Housing Associations, including the implications for the development of new Supported Housing schemes?

The session is accompanied by a very useful hundred-page book that is designed for reference after the session entitled: “Funding Supported Housing”
