The Supporting People Policy Framework (NI) 2023 guidance

Date published: 20 September 2023

The Supporting People Policy Framework (NI) 2023, is the updated departmental guidance for the Supporting People Programme. The Programme was introduced in 2003 to help the most vulnerable in our society, who require additional housing support in order to help them live independently. High quality and strategically planned housing support services are delivered through the Programme, tackling social exclusion by preventing crisis and more costly service interventions, hence providing value for money. The programme funds various provider types classified as Charity and Voluntary sector, Housing Associations, Health and Social Care Trusts (HSCTs), and Private.

The Department for Communities has overall responsibility for publishing and maintaining this guidance.
