Briefing: Westminster Hall Debate on Supported Housing

By: Charlotte Gerada  Published: October 2017


On Tuesday 10 October from 16.00-16.30, there will be a Westminster Hall debate on the future of funding supported housing. The government plans to cap supported housing tenants’ housing benefit in-line with Local Housing Allowance (LHA) rates, with an additional top-up fund administered locally to reflect the higher costs of supported accommodation.

This Shelter briefing provides information about our view of the proposed changes, what our concerns are and parliamentary questions that could be asked during the debate.
