The Resettlement Agency's strategy is to replace units where the buildings are past their best. Where the buildings are sound, and in many cases purpose-built, they are sold to reputable organisations that work in the field of the single homeless. The agency provides grants to help new owners to raise the standard of the facilities and to purchase the building. In this way all funding that was used to run the resettlement units is being transferred to the new providers.
Finally, it is not true that the National Audit Office criticised the agency for failing to meet its published targets.
