In August 2014, trainer Peter Meehan led a course for housing support workers focusing on:

  • How to deal with the ‘bedroom tax’
  • How to access Discretionary Housing Payments
  • What to do if sanctions are applied
  • What the new concept of ‘specified accommodation’ means for supported housing
  • Easement for JSA claimants that are recently homeless
