New Housing Funding to Help Older and Disabled People to Live Independently (Department of Health / Homes and Communities Agency)

Summary

Building projects are set to start on homes which will support older and disabled people to live independently for as long as possible. The government asked local authorities to bid for a share of £300 million for the supported housing market last year, and the Department of Health has now made funding allocations to build 3,544 new homes.

“As part of the first phase of the scheme, the Department will now issue more than £100 million of this fund to the Homes and Communities Agency, which will work with 86 successful agencies to build 2,875 new homes across the country. In London specifically, the Department will award the Greater London Assembly just over £29 million for 35 successful bidders who will be building 669 homes.
