Event Summary

In anticipation of the government-led Supported Housing consultation set to be released in the new year, many questions still need answering as to how regulations can be strengthened to ensure reform.

Join Westminster Insight’s annual Supported Housing Conference as we identify the key areas of focus for improvement following the introduction of the Supported Housing (Regulatory Oversight) Bill in August 2023.

Local Authorities are expected to enforce the Act by 2025 and must develop supported housing strategies. Hear from best practice local authorities that are taking a proactive approach to supporting vulnerable members of society including those with learning disabilities, complex needs, mental health, and older people.

With the Supported Housing Advisory Panel set to be formed before the 29th June 2024, we will discuss what it will look like, its powers, and intentions.

Placing residents at the heart of the issue is of vital importance – how can approaches be tailored to better understand specific needs and ensure cost-effective resolutions?

Hear from new and innovative initiatives being adopted across the private sector that are boosting quality and standards. Understand the impact of new licensing requirements for supported housing schemes on tackling financial exploitation.

Learn what the changes to intentional homelessness definitions mean to Local Authorities and how homeless applicants will see their access to supported housing change.

Attend this event to gain insight into the future of Supported Housing, an issue that directly impacts the most vulnerable parts of society. Network with colleagues from across the public and private sectors that are committed to improving standards and support those most in need.
