Petition Ensure those who live in supported housing are exempt from the LHA cap.
Plans to cap Local Housing Allowance (LHA) would mean a cut in the housing benefit for people living in specialist housing. This will affect thousands of the most vulnerable including older people, the disabled, domestic violence victims, young adults leaving care, homeless people & young families.
Some customers will be forced to find £584 extra a month or face homelessness. The cap will decimate the support housing sector, making schemes that provide additional support to those who really need it simply unviable, with the expectation that public services such as the NHS will pick up the pieces.
