Event Summary

Supported housing plays a vital role in delivering better outcomes for older, disabled and vulnerable people, helping them to live independently.

Join Westminster Insight’s annual Supported Housing Conference for timely perspectives on how to improve the availability and quality of supported housing.

You’ll hear from a range of expert speakers and supported housing providers. Get the latest legislative updates plus insights into policy and funding for the sector. Explore changing needs, and gain insights on how you can meet the future demand and adapt your services accordingly.

Join us to hear from Bob Blackman MP who will talk through his Supported Housing (Regulatory Oversight) Bill. Currently making its way through Parliament, the Bill will tackle issues around exempt accommodation, preventing exploitation through the provision of unsafe and inadequate housing.  How do we ensure that reforms close dangerous loopholes in the law, whilst protecting good providers who supply essential support and good quality housing?

Chaired by Neil Revely, Chair, ADASS Housing Policy Network, we will examine good practice and new ways of working. What does good looks like, and what activities deliver the best outcomes and value for money?

Experts from across supported housing, local government, and health will spotlight successful models of provision and schemes for multiple needs, including learning disabilities, mental health, complex needs and for older people.  You will hear useful ideas on how to engage constructively through Integrated Care Systems.

Join us in Central London for our established and highly regarded Supported Housing Conference. Meet with peers, stakeholders, and expert speakers. You will have the opportunity discuss collaborative working with other organisations who commission and deliver supported housing.
