The YOU Trust Response to DCLG & DWP Consultation – Funding for Supported Housing

YOU is concerned that the current Local Housing Allowance (LHA) cap and ‘top-up’ proposal has been created in the absence of any impact assessment and is not credible.  We are clear that the status quo is not acceptable to Government.    However, this approach is a backwards step that will stifle development and will put existing accommodation and services at unnecessary risk.  Fellow providers and trade bodies share our concerns. We believe it will undermine years of positive delivery, and will make the current situation worse.

Our full response documents can be found below.
