Reply To: Supported accommodation – abuse or not?


I did wonder whether there was element of that involved too – people who are genuinely trying to provide proper care are finding that they cannot cover the cost through the supporting people budget, so they are resorting to sophistry in an attempt to disguise the cost of care as part of the basic rent. They are in an unfortunate position; but (if I can say this without getting him into trouble) Kevin’s comments also confirm my suspicion that there are some shifty characters out there (not necessarily any of those who have been mentioned in discussion threads or Commissioners’ decisions!).
