Proposals to limit housing benefit rates to Local Housing Allowance: Impact on Supported Housing
In the 2015 Autumn Statement, the government proposed to “cap the amount of rent that Housing Benefit will cover in the social sector to the relevant Local Housing Allowance”. This briefing has been written by Homeless Link in collaboration with seven other voluntary sector organisations including Clinks. It gives information about the likely impact that this cap will have on supported housing and asks that the government remove it. It has been sent to key decision makers, including MPs.
