Social Return On Investment

Support Solutions UK believes in the social and cost-benefit of preventative services. We believe in the need to focus on value before cost where preventative services are provided for people with additional needs.

Our approach to SROI is based on a combination of the SROI Network's 7 principles and also our own view that SROI methodolgies need to be attenuated to the conditions in which providers and commissioners work. Read more....

Influencers

If you're familiar with the term "Intensive Housing Management" it's as a consequence of the fact that Support Solutions reintroduced those words, and the funding that attaches to them via complex Housing Benefit regulations, as a response to Supporting People retrenchment as far back as 2005. This has had a hugely significant impact on the ability of housing providers to fund preventative services for people with additional needs to the tune of many millions of pounds each year. Very many supported housing and tenancy sustainment services would not have survived, or developed, without it. Support Solutions is responsible for the creation of a substantial national budget that has developed as Supporting People has reduced; we identified the regulatory route and have since been involved in negotiating the bulk of the revenue paid through it.

We devised the idea of funding Tenancy Sustainment services from enhanced Housing Benefit and via core rent as well and are now visualising a new enhanced role for providers of additional services (social landlords and others), which we call "Community Sustainment" in keeping with the wider and deeper role expected of organisations that provide preventative services to people with additional needs. And that term "people with additional needs" was devised by us to replace clumsy and outmoded terms such as "service users".

We don't receive any funding from any government as a principle. We're an independent voice. We do our work quietly and without fanfare but we make a big difference to national policy, the funding organisations have and services for people with additional needs.

We are dedicated to the housing support & social care sector which means that we keep our costs and prices well within reach of providers.
