Housing related support provides flexible services that enable vulnerable people to live independently. They also play a critical role in preventing homelessness and also reduce pressures on a wide range of other public services such as health and criminal justice. Local authorities have responsibility for assessing the need for housing related support, strategic planning and commissioning services.
One of the review's recommendations called for the Supporting People Grant (SPG) and Supporting People Revenue Grant (SPRG) to be merged into one funding stream. This is has now happened to create the new Supporting People Programme Grant (SPPG), which is administered by local authorities in Wales. To find out more about the Supporting People Programme Grant (SSPG) and the Supporting People programme in Wales in general, please click here.
