Supported Housing and Service Charges - Briefing Paper

Supported Housing covers a range of housing types including group homes, hostels, refuges, supported living complexes and sheltered housing. Residents generally receive a level of personal care, support or supervision. The cost of meeting this non-housing related support is met separately from Housing Benefit. Residents typically include the elderly, people with mental, physical and learning disabilities, and substance abusers.
