Response on Housing Benefit Reform

01 October 2011

ANEC responded to the consultation's proposals to change the way Housing Benefit assists those living in supported housing within the social and voluntary sector with their rent.

Much of the supported housing in the North East, especially provision for the most vulnerable clients, is provided by Registered Social Landlords or the voluntary sector. 

ANEC encouraged the Government to bear this in mind and to carefully consider responses from those relevant organisations in the North East.
