Support Solutions UK has pioneered a unique approach to training, briefing and learning & development within the housing support and social care sector. We have an excellent reputation for the quality of what we do and we are in significant demand to provide in-house training and to speak at external conferences and other events for Housing Benefit Teams, Commissioners and Providers of housing support and social care.

"Funding for Supported Housing: Responding to the Consultation"
A series of half-day Briefing events across England
The Consultation mostly applies to England within only Part V (short-term services funding) having UK-wide applicability. It would be difficult to justify a half-day paid event on a single consultation question; however, we'd be very pleased to participate in events organised by national agencies in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
We are witnessing the most fundamental change to the funding and the role of supported housing in its history, more fundamental than Supporting People given the changing paradigm within which we operate. But we need to do more than witness it; we have to influence, inform and shape the changes that are to come. The future has challenges but it also has major opportunities for people involved in supported housing.
These events will describe and contextualise the changes to the funding, commissioning and widening role of supported housing going forward. It will identify the likely transitional arrangements and key features of the likely new operating and funding environment, it will explore the Consultation questions as reflections of UK Government policy intent and will identify a coherent response that looks forward to new roles for providers of supported housing.
These half-day Briefing events are priced at only £40 + VAT and will book up fast!
The content & outcomes will include:
- The wider context & background to the Consultation.
- What does the Consultation say?
- The funding position for supported accommodation from now until 2019/20, including transition.
- What will the new funding and commissioning mechanisms look like?
- Proving the social and financial value of what we do.
- What are the likely future roles of supported accommodation providers?
- How should we respond to the Consultation?

Michael Patterson will be the lead facilitator for these half-day briefing events with input from Danny Key at some events. Michael is an established speaker, author and supported housing policy expert. In conjunction with Danny Key, he has been responsible over a period of some years for both predicting and influencing the direction of UK Government policy in relation to supported housing. There are many key Support Solutions themes in the Consultation document on the future funding of the supported housing sector.
Michael's style of delivery is very much a form of briefing with interactive debate and discussion throughout. As always, he'll relate the wider context to the way forward for providers of supported accommodation and translate policy direction into practical steps and responses.

The cost per delegate for each half-day Briefing is only £40 + VAT. As always this represents excellent value for money for up to the minute information and advice from the people who have correctly predicted the direction of travel that the Consultation represents. Includes tea/coffee/juice/danish pastries and materials and good quality venues.
Our training and briefing events are designed to make a positive and significant difference to you and your organisation. They are always well-informed and are delivered in an engaging and thought-provoking style. We provide a great deal of high-quality material for ongoing learning after the events have finished, which is just one of the factors that set us apart from others.
We put a great deal of thought into the delivery of every event we run: the venue, the catering, the layout of the room, the resources we provide, the numbers of people attending, differing learning styles, opportunities for participation and costs.
We make a distinction between Briefing Events and Training Events so that delegates know what to expect when they book. We provide both in-house and open events. We have focused on the need to keep costs very low and the quality very high. The feedback we get attests to the success of that strategy. Many people and organisations which provide training to housing support and social care providers have cut back on their training activity. We have increased the number of learning events we run and reduced our charges.
We train in excess of 2500 people every year. We reflect the interests that housing support and social care agencies have.
