Government cuts and the supporting people programme

by d.regan 24. August 2010 10:47

The National Federation, which represents England’s housing associations, warns that cuts of 40% to the CLG-funded Supporting People programme, would lead to the loss of home based support for 326,000 older owner-occupiers and pensioners living in sheltered accommodation, to help maintain their independence. The treasury has ordered all government departments to model cuts of 40% in advance of the autumn spending review.
