Charity Commission Blog: The lease-based model of supported housing
The supported housing sector is a space where many aspects of civil society come together to meet the needs of vulnerable people
Although supported housing can be provided by local authorities, housing associations and private landlords, in many cases supported housing is provided by charities.
Charities are therefore an important part of the supported housing sector, helping their beneficiaries access specialised accommodation and support services to ensure their needs are met.
As for all charities which provide services, particularly for vulnerable people, trustees need to be aware of and attentive to risks to both their beneficiaries or their charity.
