Supported Housing and the benefits system – report back on events in April 2015

In April 2015, the HSEU held events in Dundee and Glasgow focussing on the way supported housing may be affected by further reform of the benefits system.

These two events provided opportunity for participants to:

  • Reflect on the way the benefits system deals with supported housing now
  • Find out more about UK wide plans to change the system
  • Hear about the way supported housing services may be affected in the future, including focussing on a recent Upper Tribunal Decision
  • Share your views on how the system could be re- designed to promote supported housing rather than put it  at risk

Speakers included Peter Meehan, HB Consultant and Marion Gibbs, Homelessness, Scottish Government.
