Supported Living – is there demand in my area?

26th May 2023

When first starting to investigate supported living as a strategy, one question we get asked all the time is, “Is there a demand in my area?”

To help people get started, last year we launched our Area Appraisal services.

This is where we do an in depth look at an area, the current supply and demand of supported living housing, the council’s approach, what their current and future plans are, links to relevant/key supporting documents, where possible, contact details of key decision makers and what types of rentals you can get from LHA rates to open market plus.

 Here's what one investor said about the Area Appraisal we did for him:

“The Supported Living Gateway team were able to offer us an Area Appraisal for our local area, as we were keen to implement the supported living strategy. 

This was fantastic as it gave us key practical statistics as well as great insight into how the supported living strategy integrates into our local council and related services, with the key contacts and details that stem off from this for us to follow up with. Without this, I wouldn’t know where to start.

This has been a great supplement to our business to help us move forward, not only has it been useful but also practical to action too - Thanks to the SLG team for your kind support!”

 For details on this unique service then please follow this link  Area Appraisal.

 Or send us an email to where one of the team will be more than happy to help with any questions you have.
