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.

Please note this research was conducted prior to Affinity Sutton merging with Circle Housing to create your new housing association Clarion Housing.
