SFHA briefs MPs ahead of supported housing debate
SFHA briefs MPs ahead of opposition day debate on funding for supported housing.
The SFHA has briefed MPs ahead of today's opposition day debate on supported housing. The briefing advocates the scrapping the Local Housing Allowance (LHA) cap on social housing and argues for the introduction of any change to the funding of supported housing to be deferred to allow time for pilot schemes to take place and be evaluated. The briefing was accompanied by a number of case studies provided by members which illustrate the potential harm the proposed measures could inflict if implemented in their current form.
