This morning, the Government announced that all supported housing funding will be covered by the welfare system, ending their plan to fund short-term accommodation through council grants. This fantastic news is what we’ve been working to achieve.

In this clip, Catherine Ryder, Head of Policy at the National Housing Federation talks about what the announcement means for the sector.

I hope you’ll join us in celebrating this announcement on Starts at Home Day (Friday 31 August) by sharing stories online that highlight just how vital supported housing is.
