I was 'Identified as a vulnerable person likely to be affected by the changes coming 6th April 2013'.
This council is assessing the cost of moving people who are over-accommodated (i've seen larger airing cupboards but still...). People who have a 'spare room' will find housing benefit reduction of 14%. However there is a discretionary fund for people who have FIXED ADAPTATIONS, in which case it's cheaper for them to pay the top-up and keep us where we are. Grab rails alone are unlikely to account for much.
A very nice lady, she said I was very likely to receive the top-up (no guarantees mind), but I wonder how many people would find they're not so fortunate?
