Consultation: Housing Benefit reform
The government has launched a consultation on proposals to change the way Housing Benefit helps those living in supported housing within the social and voluntary sector with their rent. They are seeking views to inform their policy development as they look to re-design the way in which Housing Benefit helps with the higher rents sometimes faced by those needing support to live independently, such as the elderly or those with disabilities.
