Valuation of house process is very essential if you are selling your house

Working  against the standards set through the Quality Assessment Framework has  allowed providers and authorities to drive up and sustain quality and to build  up service user involvement in defining what is provided. It  helps to improve the quality of life for some of society’s most vulnerable  people, allowing them to move towards or maintain their independence, and  prevent them entering into crisis, homelessness or institutional care. Through the programme, we have invested over £5 billion over three years to  enable the provision of support services at the local level. While it operates  throughout the United Kingdom, it is overseen separately by ODPM (for  England) and by the devolved administrations.

In particular, it looks at how the programme might be more  Why do we need a Supporting People strategy?  11 effectively focussed around outcomes, the different sorts of outcomes which  can be achieved through the use of housing-related support, and also the  different service contexts within which support can sit; But, as is acknowledged in this  document, we also know that this can sometimes be more complex in ‘two-tier’  arrangements i.e. where functions in relation to services for vulnerable people  are split between county and district authorities. Detailed info here : Valuations NSW

The devolved administrations will consider separately what  implications this work might have for their own Supporting People  programmes. This will allow us to better develop a strategy for Supporting People, and we  would intend to issue our further thinking following the consultation in Summer  2006. In doing so, we have put forward the Government’s preliminary views,  but we also raise a number of key questions and we would welcome input. Rather, it seeks to stimulate and provide the basis for a discussion on  how best to take forward the commissioning and delivery of housing-related  support.

 These principles therefore set the context for both this consultation and for the  work which we will carry out to develop a more detailed forward strategy. The Government’s programme of public service reform is ensuring that services  become focused on and driven by what the service user wants. Furthermore, the achievement of  national objectives requires effective joining-up of action at the local level,  particularly around partnership working between agencies. While housing-related support in itself makes an important contribution to  meeting these objectives, achieving them requires an approach which brings  together all of the right support and services.
