Research into financial benefits of Supporting People programme

Published by Department for Communities and Local Government, this piece of research estimates the financial benefits of the Supporting People (SP) programme for a majority of the groups supported. The SP programme provides housing related services to vulnerable people, which are typically parts of packages of support and potentially other services (which may be provided by the public, private or third sector).

The research considers, for user each group, what the financial impact would be if SP funded services were replaced by the most appropriate positive alternatives for meeting the group's needs (i.e. the approach which would, in the absence of Supporting People, provide the highest degree of independent living).
