Supported housing

The largest team of dedicated housing experts in the country delivering value for money through innovation and quality advice that is pragmatic, reliable and consistent

The funding and delivery of supported housing has seen a complete overhaul with the introduction of supporting people. The reverberations from these changes are likely to continue for some time in the future. Affordable housing providers need to keep abreast of not only the contractual and commissioning changes but also the changes in law which impact on supported housing projects which extend from issues of human rights to disability discrimination.

Our wealth of experience in advising supported housing providers over some 25 years enables us to provide practical legal advice which enables your staff to concentrate on the delivery of the service and not have to worry about legal pitfalls.

As well as advising on pure law we are also able to help you with negotiations of contract terms, the drafting of policies, procedures and the specific provisions required in tenancies or other contracts with service users. We can also advise on employment law matters such as the working time directive and CRB checks, which may have specific impact on your staff. We are also able to advise on specific issues which relate to floating support schemes as well as residential projects and contractual arrangements with care and support providers where this is delivered by a third party.
