Changing structures in commissioning for housing-related support

This guide by Homeless Link presents an overview of changing practice within commissioning of housing-related support throughout the country. The guidance is relevant to all local authority teams involved in housing-related support commissioning.

Recognising the difficult decisions that councils are having to make, it provides some useful suggestions for how they may be able to continue to work effectively, maintaining strong relationships with service providers and coping with challenging financial circumstances.

The guidance considers evidence gained from detailed case studies of seven local authority areas across England (both rural and urban areas, as well as unitary and two-tier authorities)
