Developing a Strategic Housing Needs Assessment
CT was commissioned by the South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Integrated Commissioning System to develop a Strategic Housing Needs Assessment.
Campbell Tickell was commissioned by the South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Integrated Commissioning System (ICS) to develop a Strategic Housing Needs Assessment, assessing the number and types of supported housing and independent living housing units needed for people with learning disabilities, autism and severe mental ill health from 2020-2030.
We worked on the following:
Covering four local authorities of Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield, CT worked with the housing strategy and supply officers, social care commissioners and the CCGs across the ICS footprint.
Gathering data on current needs and model projected needs over the next 10 years, CT tested assumptions with key officers to produce a robust and credible assessment of the number and type of units needed.
Throughout, our team worked closely with people with lived experience to co-produce the recommendations on the types of housing needed. Having mapped this, CT then matched it to the current and known supply to arrive at a net need for each local authority.
Our team also supported the ICS and its partners in housing to agree a plan for integrating the findings and projections into the LAs future housing plans and development pipelines.
This Strategic Housing Needs Assessment will be used over the next 10 years to meet the needs of people with learning disabilities, autism and severe mental ill health in Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield.
