Spare Room Subsidy - Awareness campaign

bedroom taxDWP will be placing adverts in a number of regional press titles nationally to raise awareness of the changes to the Housing Benefit size criteria for social sector tenants, which will start on 1 April 2013. These adverts will begin to appear from Friday 22 March and will continue through week commencing 25 March 2013.

The adverts will explain the policy intention behind the changes and will confirm that those affected should already have been contacted by their local authority, but will signpost again to the local authority and for further information.

You may see an increase in enquiries over the period the adverts appear. Further information on the changes can be found on the DWP website.
