It was fantastic to have Kineara’s managing director Maria Morgan speak at Westminster Briefing’s forum on supporting tenants through welfare reform in central London last week. She joined members of the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) and housing professionals raised concerns about how sweeping welfare changes will impact tenants.
Organised by Westminster Briefing, speakers gave examples of projects that housing associations and independent organisations are running to mitigate the risks of arrears as vulnerable tenants manage the move from housing benefit to Universal Credit. Aside from Kineara’s RSP, it was great to hear about how Hyde Plus’ project for young people, the Money House, is providing training on tenancy sustainment, money advice and budgeting.
Thank you to Westminster Briefing for inviting us to take part in the event.
