This policy is basically about continuing the allocation of housing benefit and the work to end homelessness.
The government offers assistance to people unable to pay their rent, by paying part or all of it through housing benefit. There are several benefits calculators available to find out what benefits you could get and how to claim.
There are also initiatives designed to make home ownership more affordable through government-backed loans and saving schemes.
As part of the work towards ending homelessness, the Homelessness Reduction Act 2017 requires local authorities to prevent homelessness at earlier stages, and extend services to everyone affected, not just those in “priority need”.
The government is continuing to support those that struggle to buy or rent a home and has made further progress in helping those that cannot afford one. The policy pledge is to “continue” doing something, and as the government has not stopped, this one is ‘done’.
