Welfare Reform – major changes to benefits are here

Major changes to the welfare benefits system are here

If you have a spare bedroom and are you under 61 - this could cost you!!

These Government changes are complex and many people who think they will be exempt from changes might be in for a costly surprise .

Many of our tenants on Housing Benefits are going to be affected by the Under Occupation (bedroom tax) charges which will come into force on 1st of April 2013.

You can see a short film about it here

There will be lots of people who maybe worried about the changes and might want further information or support.

We are holding a number of events for residents to pop in for advice and support on the upcoming changes
