There is good news, bad news and some continuing uncertainty in today’s long-awaited government announcement on the future funding of supported housing.
Originally expected before the summer recess, it finally came in a written statement from work and pensions secretary Damian Green. This follows the deferral of implementation of the LHA cap and 1% rent cut on the sector to allow more research and consultation.
