Until this year the emphasis had been to develop new hostels by malting grants to voluntary organisations or local authorities. A new approach was tested in 1992/93.
Two units, Camden and Newbury, have been sold under long term lease to voluntary organisations.
Tony Ward, the Agency's Chief Executive, said: 'The new approach has proved successful. We generated considerable interest from a wide range of voluntary organisations and local authorities.
Most of the remaining units will now be sold under long-term lease to voluntary organisations or local authorities. Grant aid will be available to the organisations concerned.
