Nick Brown MP Holds Debate on the Future Funding of Supported Housing

Nick held a debate on the future funding of supported housing on 12 April 2016.

In the debate Nick raised the potential impacts of Government cuts to housing benefit on those in supported housing.

Supported housing is housing which is provided to vulnerable people who need extra care in order to life independent and happy lives. Under Government proposals funding for this could be cut and many supported housings schemes could close, risking increased homelessness.

Nick called for supported housing to be exempt from the cuts, however the Government did not commit to this.

The debate was well attended with MP’s from a range of political parties present. You can read the full debate here.
