Impact of cutting housing benefit on underoccupiers in social housing
Housing Futures Network
New research launched by the Housing Futures Network, a
collection of leading housing groups, has revealed the impact
housing benefit changes would have on social housing tenants
underoccupying their homes.
The network interviewed 452 working-age households in receipt of
benefit and living in social housing, which face cuts to their
benefit payments from 2013 under Government proposals. In total
670,000 households could be impacted by the cut.
