Housing and benefits

Next Tyneside Claimants Union meeting:
11am, November 2nd 2010,
back room of St Thomas’ Church, Haymarket.

We are having a themed meeting on housing and housing benefits. How will the spending review, recent changes, and the government’s future plans affect our access to housing? What is the situation now? What are the future changes to Housing Benefit, Local Housing Allowance, Council Tax Benefit, Support For Mortgage Interest, etc? Who will be affected? Will homelessness increase? How will social housing and the provision of affordable homes change? How is the North East affected? How can we resist cuts and fight for decent housing for all? What can we do to help ourselves and support each other?

Everyone welcome.
