If you are reducing support for vulnerable homeless people what will happen to them?

It is proposed that contracts will be ended with local providers who support approximately 500 vulnerable adults with their tenancies and in terms of improving their well-being and outcomes.  We realised there is a danger that some of these will deteriorate when the support is withdrawn and go on to have acute housing or social care needs.  Therefore, it is proposed to design a new service which will provide some support for many of these former beneficiaries; support won’t be as much as before or for as many as before, but will be there to maintain a service to prevent needs from escalating. There will also be some specialist provision for victims of domestic abuse contained within this budget.
