AnnotationThe Study Group's report demonstrated wide variations in the scale and extent of need for care of tenants in Anchor schemes. The need for extra care was found to be relatively small, though when such a need arises, it is relatively intense. The Study Group came to the conclusion that any kind of rigid framework for providing extra care should be avoided, and that housing management should be encouraged to adopt speedy, flexible and imaginative responses to individual problems as they arise.
