Consultation on housing related support services in Warwickshire
Warwickshire County Council (WCC) has launched a public consultation seeking the views of people in Warwickshire about how housing related services are provided.
Housing related support services support people with vulnerabilities and additional needs to enable them to attain the skills required to be able to gain and/or maintain a tenancy and live independently in the community and help prevent homelessness.
Like other local authorities, the council is facing significant financial challenges. In February 2023, WCC Council agreed that the budget for housing related support services would reduce by £1m from April 2025. Considering this, WCC is undertaking this consultation to re-design these services to become more efficient and effective within a reduced budget, while retaining clear focus on those people in the greatest need and those whose support will prevent them needing care services.
The aim of this consultation is to inform Warwickshire residents about the proposals to redesign services and to ask for views.
