The Transitional Housing Benefit Scheme: A three-way Process
In-House Report No. 86
By Roy Sainsbury and Christine Oldman
This report presents the findings of research commissioned by DWP and DTLR into the implementation of the Transitional Housing Benefit Scheme. Six case studies carried out in early 2001 and four workshops for local authorities were hosted by DETR and DSS in April and May 2001. The case studies comprised in depth interviews with the key stakeholders in each local authority area, including Housing Benefit managers, staff directly involved with implementing THBS, Supporting People lead officers, staff in housing and social services departments, and providers of supported accommodation. A small number of interviews with staff of Benefits Agency offices were also carried out. The workshops were attended by Housing Benefit and Supporting People staff from approximately 160 local authorities.
