The LHA maxima cap policy of the Conservatives will close all DV refuges, all single homeless hostels and much sheltered housing and much specialist supported housing for all other vulnerable persons.
Today the Labour Party had an Opposition Day debate on this LHA maxima policy and sought to have supported and sheltered housing exempted from it.
That attempt failed and the LHA maxima policy will go ahead so all refuges and all single homeless and other short-term hostel type provision will inevitably close.

Where in Gods name are these people to go ?????
Much as I would love to say to everyone who voted this government in “I told you so” – it wouldn’t really help the situation. I knew this sort of thing would happen once they were in power.
The hostels for single people have been a lifeline for them, but not everyone is aware of this. However, if the government think they can get away with closing sheltered accommodation – presumably this includes complexes for the elderly – then they are living on Cloud 9. There will be a public outcry!
No there won’t. It’s been quietly happening for years. I work in homelessness sector with a major charitable provider. We are waiting for the shoe to fall. Most providers work at a loss so it’s just a matter of time. I fear for the vulnerable person out there
