Vulnerable people at risk as housing leaders plan to mitigate service cuts

UK Housing Panel March 2011


The Chartered Institute of Housing’s new UK Housing Panel is an influential group of CIH members who record key measures of demand and supply of housing, affordability and housing quality in a quarterly survey.

Housing professionals throughout the UK have warned of service reductions and scheme closures as the funding for housing related support is cut. Following the change to the way Supporting People funding is delivered in England, 6 in 10 housing leaders warn that services to vulnerable people will be reduced. Leaders in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales also warn of the impact of budget reductions and the pressure to commission the cheapest options for service delivery. Members of the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) were gearing up to deal with the negative impacts of funding cuts to

housing related support services from 1 April 2011, which one in five warn will be somewhere between 10 and 50 per cent in the first year.
