At Midland Mencap we believe having your own home is one of the most important things a person can have. Though we’re delighted the Government has now said there will be no cap on Housing Benefit for people living in Supported Housing we fully agree with this article from The Independent.
For vulnerable people to think they might lose their home and the support that comes with it was cruel and unnecessary. We now wait for the detail of the Governments decision and we hope it doesn’t come with strings attached.
If you need help or you know someone who needs advice or support with housing please contact us on 0121 442 2944.
