Supporting People is a funding scheme that was set up in 2003 to help vulnerable people in the UK live independently and maintain their social housing tenancies. It is run by local governments, provided by the voluntary sector and originally had a ring-fence attached to it. Today the ring-fence is off, local authorities have full discretion as to where to allocate these funds and the funding is in jeopardy in many areas of the country. However, some local authorities retain the label of Supporting People and the focus on preventative service that it championed.
