Overseeing standards, quality and value for money in supported housing: what should be done?

16 December 2021

The last five years have seen a proliferation of leased based supported housing providers and non-commissioned services using exempt accommodation housing benefit rules. After rapid expansion, some registered supported housing providers have had to close due to insurmountable financial weakness.

This webinar explores current supported housing pilots aimed at improving the quality, enforcement, oversight and value for money in supported housing. We also review the remedies for the poor quality provision and discuss the lessons learned from the experience of Prospect Housing in trying to improve standards.

Speakers include:

  • Sue Ramsden, Policy Leader, NHF
  • Vicky McDermott, Interim Chief Executive, Prospect
  • John Bower, Project Manager, Supported Accommodation Review Team, Hull City Council
  • Emily Whiteside, Lead for Quality and Oversight for supported housing, DLUHC
