For the purposes of the review, we defined ‘Supported Accommodation’ as an integrated package of housing, support and sometimes care services. The findings of the supported accommodation review made several clear recommendations. Commissioning propose a model of prevention and early intervention. The model will fit around ‘single-point-of-access’ which provides access to a mixed market of quality internal and external provision. Although in part, the catalyst for the review was undertaken due to an existing contract coming to a natural end, Commissioners used the review as an opportunity to look both externally (and internally), and to understand the existing systems, processes and interfaces that are a feature of supported accommodation at Wolverhampton. Findings around how provision is currently accessed call for: • creating a robust and responsive single point of access that is understood both internally and externally and is underpinned by processes that are aligned across all areas of the City Council and with stakeholders • aligning all contracts within a mixed market approach of sufficient internal and externally contracted services to meet the Supported Accommodation Needs for young people and young families to allow us to better meet the strategic priorities of the service.
