A Making Best Use of Stock Team Practice Note

Sharing information to prepare for welfare reform

Description

A fundamental part of preparing for welfare reform, in particular the introduction of the social sector size criteria and the overall benefit cap in April 2013, is identifying the tenants who are affected so that you can target help and support effectively. Equally, local authority housing benefit (HB) teams need information about claimants, who is living with them and the number of bedrooms their homes have to enable them to assess claims accurately.

This practice note provides guidance for housing providers and local authorities on how they can share information to meet these needs.
