Welfare reform has thrown up many challenges but one in particular has cast a long shadow for homeless charities – changes to the way housing costs are paid for when providing supported accommodation. This webinar, that we are running in partnership with Sitra, will talk you through the new regulations surrounding exempt ('specified') accommodation.
This webinar, broadcast on 8 April 2014, covered:
- Background to the issue
- What is included in the new category of "Specified Accommodation"
- What this means for the way this type of accommodation is treated under Universal Credit and the Benefit Cap
- Scenarios for existing services
- Timescales and implementation
