The tools offer advice, support and guidance for anybody considering applying for a discretionary housing payment or for anyone facing homelessness.
“A huge proportion of the people who contact me do so with problems associated with housing.
“Whether it is evictions and homelessness, poor conditions in private rented, rising rents or unresponsive housing associations, the housing crisis is having a huge impact on many of my constituents day-to-day lives.
“I welcome these new online tools from Shelter and urge any constituents facing homelessness or considering applying for a Discretionary Housing Payment to make use of them.”
