Notes

In a Freedom of Information request dated 7 November 2018 we asked the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) for a list of the organisations consulted in the development of its robust oversight regime for supported housing since the Government’s announcement on 9 August 2018.

The above table was supplied on 5 December under reference “Freedom of Information Act 2000 – 3959993”.

In their response the MHCLG added:

“We have also attended Supported Housing events run by the National Housing Federation at Manchester, Taunton, Birmingham, London and Cambridge to engage on oversight. We do not hold a list of organisations present at these events.”
