Briefing: Reforming Social Security

This briefing from the ADASS Housing Policy Network by Sitra and NHF, supported by the Housing LIN, is written at a time when changes to welfare benefits are beginning to make an impact overall on the housing options for social care clients and other adults for whom authorities may be providing specialist accommodation such as women's refuges, homeless hostels, and other forms of supported housing. It takes a look at key benefit changes, special treatment, service charges, and housing costs for older people and makes specific recommendations for Directors of Adult Social Care.
