provided councils with ring-fenced funding for people struggling to live independently.
Although the 2018/19 budget shows a distinct budget line in the housing policy department for the Supporting People Programme
at PS124.4m, this has disappeared in the budget for 2019/20.
A statement from the DSD last night said: "The NI Housing Executive administers the Supporting People Programme

for the most vulnerable in the city from pounds 3.8 million to pounds 1.9 million; - not making a proposed further reduction of pounds 0.5 million to the Youth Service; and, - continuing to support important community events.
