    Philomena Cunningham, Operations Director of Housing, Community and Support Services at Progress Housing Group, said: “We are really pleased to have been awarded both contracts to provide supported housing accommodation and services to people in Chorley and South Ribble. In winning the contracts we will be able to offer vulnerable people safe accommodation whether fleeing domestic abuse or facing homelessness as well as access to support services. We have been providing services to victims of domestic abuse and young people facing homelessness for over ten years, and have established good relationships with support providers across the region that we will be able to bring with us in this new contract. We’re now looking forward to building on the work that has already taken place in the Chorley area, and continue to provide much needed support to victims and survivors of domestic abuse and young people facing homelessness.”

Responding to the DWP Consultation:  Housing Benefit Reform - Supported Housing "It was well-run, in a good location, and very useful.  I've only one suggestion; as the session went on it would perhaps have been useful for bullet points of general agreement about what should be in the sector response to be displayed and added to as the session went on, maybe on a flip chart. Regarding your response paper, I particularly like the answer you give to question 9.  In fact the general: "if it ain't broke don't fix it" response could be pushed harder."
