At last some good housing news for young people

img 2133Last week the Department for Work & Pensions confirmed that they have changed the position on housing costs for people aged 18-25.  Young people in that age group will all now be able to get help with their housing costs. 

Until today the younger cohort were due to lose access to Housing Benefit or Universal Credit unless they were part of specific exemption categories.  This is good news for being able to help young people access the housing they need and retain access to options such as social housing tenancies which were being questioned in some areas.
