Consultation description

This consultation seeks views on the government’s proposals to change the way Housing Benefit helps those living in supported housing within the social and voluntary sector with their rent.

We are seeking views to inform our policy development as we look to redesign 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. The public consultation applies to England, Scotland and Wales.

The consultation is aimed primarily at those involved in the commissioning, funding and providing of supported housing. We also welcome comments from those needing support to live independently, such as vulnerable older and disabled people, and those who represent their views.
