Volume 473: debated on Thursday 13 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many units of accommodation have been provided using funding from the extra care housing grant since it began; how many have been provided by (a) councils, (b) registered social landlords and (c) the private sector; and if he will make a statement on the future use of the grant. (183755)

The development of more than 4,200 units of accommodation is being funded by the Department’s extra care housing grant. All 72 schemes receiving funding from this grant were delivered by a council, and 68 of the schemes were delivered by councils in partnership with a registered social landlord. Records are not held centrally on private-sector involvement in the schemes.

A further £80 million will be made available between 2008 and 2010 to fund further extra care housing developments in England.
