Starts at Home
The Starts at Home campaign aims to highlight the unique benefits of supported housing to show why it is so important to individuals and society. Over 400,000 people live in supported accommodation, including sheltered accommodation, refuges for women fleeing domestic violence, shelters and supported homes for those at risk of homelessness, and supported housing for vulnerable young people and adults with disabilities.
You can read more about people who’ve been helped by supported housing here.
The funding system for supported housing is currently being reviewed by the government, after which a new funding mechanism will be set up. The National Housing Federation and Aspire Housing are campaigning to secure a government commitment that everyone can have a home that meets their unique needs.
