Ahead of Starts at Home Day 2021, this webinar explores how supported housing providers stepped up to meet the demands of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic and how they can continue to support their residents’ wellbeing while also working with the NHS.
During the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, supported housing providers worked to ensure their residents were safe and healthy in their homes and worked to relieve pressure on NHS services during a critical time.
Supported Housing provides invaluable housing and support for some of the most vulnerable people in society, for working-age and older people alike, including retirement and extra care housing, homeless hostels, homes for people with learning or physical disabilities and people with autism, mental health step-down units and domestic abuse refuges.
Supported housing gives people choice about their lives, allows them to live in a home environment rather than institutional settings, and frees up institutional care provision. Supported housing also helps ease the pressure on the NHS and care services, and saves around £940 of public funds per resident per year.
