Setting the Standard
Welcome to Setting the Standard (StS), London's centralised temporary accommodation inspection service, brought to you by the London Housing Directors, West London Alliance and its Commissioning Alliance.
First implemented in September 2020, designed for London and with the unprecedented engagement of 32 out of 33 London boroughs. The service has secured a total of £236,000 grant from The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) and the Greater London Authority (GLA).
What We do:
StS links together a dedicated central inspections team, with a new, purpose-built IT system to share inspections data across participating local authorities.
StS aims to inspect all Bed & Breakfast and Studio type properties used by Local Authorities for temporary accommodation placements on an annual basis, ensuring properties meet the minimum required standard.
