Housing mum and baby

YMCA St Paul’s Group is delighted to hear the news that the Government has acknowledged that changes are urgently required within the Exempt Accommodation sector.  As a provider of high-quality Exempt Accommodation, we are strong advocates for making sure providers are ensuring that their buildings are safe, secure, and well maintained, and that the care and support provided is designed to meet the needs of the residents. We firmly believe that these standards should never be compromised to ensure a profit and we’re glad that Government also agrees.  We now look forward to seeing how these measures set out by Eddie Hughes MP are implemented and hope that they will help those who are working hard to deliver a high-quality service, whilst those who are seeking to take advantage of the system will be prevented from doing so.  A huge well done to everyone involved in campaigning and raising awareness of this incredibly important issue.
