UK: Cuts to housing benefits to hit disabled people

Posted 03/6-11 at 02.51

Last year the government agreed that disabled people could receive the two-bedroom rate of housing benefit to pay for a room to be used by carers.

However, this move has now been nullified as many councils people.

It seems areas that are facing the biggest cuts in local housing allowances are major cities, where many disabled people choose to live due to better hospitals, transport and facilities. With the clawing back have cut the allowance rate for two-bedroom homes by at least £50-£70 a week, making the situation considerably worse for Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, some disabled £1,765m a year from housing benefit, it is no wonder cities are lowering their local housing allowances.
