Better help with housing costs

EventsResourcesVideosWebinarEvent Date: May 13th, 2020  Time: 15:00

The Welsh Government and local authorities help people on low incomes with the costs of housing. This webinar focuses on the support that’s available for people on low income with their housing costs, and our ideas about how that support could be improved.

Some of the key topics covered include:

  • the support that’s available to people on low income with their housing costs;
  • the strengths and weaknesses of the current approach;
  • our recommendations on steps that could immediately be taken to improve the support that families receive;
  • our more radical recommendations that we believe could reduce the impact of housing as a cause of poverty in the medium to long term.
