SFHA Roundtable Discussion - Share your thoughts on the welfare system
SFHA Roundtable Discussion, Monday 3 December, SFHA Office, Glasgow.
The Work and Pensions Select Committee has launched an inquiry into the current state of the UK’s welfare safety net, prompted by the evidence of debt, hunger and homelessness it has heard across several recent inquiries. It is seeking views from organisations and individuals on a series of questions, full details of which can be found on the Select Committee webpages.
Universal Credit; DLA to PIP; the Benefit Cap, the ‘bedroom tax’/removal of the spare room subsidy; the two child limit and the ‘rape clause’: nobody can deny that the social security system has experienced significant change. Social landlords will have had a distinct insight into these changes, from the effects they have had on individual tenants and on tenancy sustainment overall.
SFHA will hold a roundtable discussion on Monday, December 3rd between 11am and 1pm in the SFHA offices to give members an opportunity to discuss their concerns over the current system and to inform SFHA’s submission to the inquiry.
This is a unique opportunity for SFHA members to have their say on how changes to the welfare system have affected them and their tenants.
Places at the roundtable event can be booked on the SFHA website.
The deadline for consultation submissions is 14 December 2018.
