April 2000 sees the beginning of a radical shake‐up of the way housing and support is funded. It will involve the transfer of about £800m to local authorities, which will assume wide new responsibilities for new groups of people currently in supported housing.Yet there is little awareness in many agencies of these major developments. It is essential that local authorities and health agencies become more engaged, quickly, in discussions of how Supporting People is to work.
