Answered By: 
The Mayor

Homes for Londoners will not directly commission housing, supported or otherwise. However, It will oversee London's housing-related investment programmes, which include funding for developing and improving supported accommodation for a whole range of groups who need supported accommodation, young people among them. It is for boroughs and their supported accommodation providers to identify the precise groups for whom accommodation is required.
