Supporting People

The Supporting People (SP) programme strategically commissions, monitors and reviews housing related support services to complement existing statutory services.  The programme supports some of the most vulnerable and socially excluded.  The primary purpose is to develop and sustain an individual’s capacity to live independently in their accommodation. 

The Supporting People Service helped around 2000 people in 2009/10 of working age to live independently in housing across the county, but there is some inequity of provision.
