The Support Solutions Housing Support and Social Care Briefing: Issue 12
Welcome to issue 12 of the Briefing. The publication for people involved in providing and commissioning housing support & social care services for vulnerable people. Our theme for Issue 12 is “Paradigm Shift & how to respond”.
Public sector funding restraints are having a significant impact, not just on resources for the services we provide and commission, but also on the arrangements for commissioning, funding, developing and managing services for vulnerable people.

In Scotland, Wales and Northern ireland devolved Governments are responsible for health and social care amongst other things; however, public sector economic retrenchment affects the UK as a whole. Whilst public sector infrastructure may be better preserved within devolved administrations than is the case in England the implications of reduced funding are universal and the themes in these briefing articles have wide application across the UK, although they may may vary by degree.
Welfare and Housing Benefit are not (yet) devolved powers so the impact of UK Government policy in these areas will be more directly felt within all of the constituent nations of the UK.
