Sheltered Housing consultation

New Search

Purpose Lancashire County Council is required to save 300 million by 2017/18, and as part of its programme of savings it has decided to reduce the Supporting People budget by 4 million from 1st April 2015, of which it is proposed to save 2 million from older people's sheltered housing. This consultation is an opportunity for you to share your views with us about our proposed approach to commissioning sheltered housing and community alarm services in the future.

In addition to this consultation, we will also ask landlords/support providers to consult with their tenants and feedback any responses to the county council. In order to assist with this process, we will be developing some key messages for tenants regarding the savings and future proposed arrangements. While recognising that a few services offer support to individuals who are not their tenants, we have decided to use the term tenant throughout the questionnaire to refer to all service users.
