‘More permanent housing needed’

Authorities that administer Supporting People should require that
every service contracted has a move-on plan, according to a
government-funded study.

The report into the first phase of the Move-On Alternatives Project
estimates that up to two-thirds of residents of supported housing
in north London can not find permanent accommodation.

It also reveals that as much as £31m may be spent across the
area each year on housing-related support for people who no longer
need it.

It proposes that councils set up a move-on group and that all
social landlords adopt common criteria for determining which
supported housing residents obtain social housing.
