The Supporting People budget provides support to Sheltered Housing and is allocated to top tier local authorities. Data on spend are therefore not available at a district level.

The following table sets out the amount spent on sheltered housing or very sheltered housing through the Supporting People programme for East Sussex county council, the south-east region and England in the last five years where complete data are available.
