Supported housing: best practice

Virtual workshop

The government’s recently published national statement of expectations for supported housing and the White Paper have outlined the vision of how things will work across the sector. While conversations on supported housing have often focused on accommodation for older people, the pandemic and these publications have highlighted the importance and complexities of this part of our sector which landlords have long understood. 

With the possibility of a new inspection regime focusing on those within high-risk areas, supported housing staff need to be on top of the latest best practice. We will look at areas including domestic abuse and housing, pathways to independence for people with disabilities, support for the homelessness, and support for those living with mental health conditions.

This conference will look at the current landscape, the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the sector and services, the Housing White Paper and examples of best practice.

The event should be attended by housing professionals working within supported housing settings or providing these services, and those who are responsible for these areas.
