1BACKGROUND

The Supporting People (SP) programme was launched on 1 April 2003 across the UK bringing together Supporting People programmes several housing-related funding streams under one umbrella programme (Communities and Local Government, 2010).

The programme aims to deliver Supporting People programmes high quality and strategically planned housing related support services which are cost-effective, reliable and compliment existing care services (Communities and Local Government, 2007).

In Wales, the Welsh Assembly Government adopts a commissioning approach based on collaboration and partnership. Funding is divided between central Supporting People programmes government and local government. The SP Grant (SPG) is administered by Welsh local authorities and used to fund chargeable support services. These services relate primarily to long term support provision Supporting People programmes, and generally cater for older people, people with learning disabilities and people with mental health problems. The SP Revenue Grant (SPRG) is administered by the Welsh Assembly Government directly to Accredited Supporting People programmes Support Providers and used to fund non-chargeable support services, incorporating shorter term support provision (Welsh Assembly Government, 2003).

In 2006, the Welsh Assembly Government published Costs and benefits of the Supporting People programme which quantified Supporting People programmes the benefits, in financial terms, of the SP programme in Wales. The report concluded that the SP programme makes a significant contribution to the public purse with an estimated saving of £1.68 for Supporting People programmes every £1 spent on housing related support services (Welsh Assembly Government, 2006).
