Congratulations to (SVE) for putting on an excellent evening of celebration for the amazing volunteers in Stirling.  It was fantastic to meet the individuals who were behind the applications and to hear from their own words, the difference they make for others, through using their own time and skills.

Challenging the 'Bedroom Tax'

If you find yourself subject to what has become known as the 'Bedroom Tax', or are involved in advising others about it,  then you may find the following resource very useful.

Govan Law Centre has launched a free toolkit guide to help tenants challenge cuts to their housing benefit due to the bedroom tax. 

GLC’s toolkit provides step by step guidance and illustrations on how to complete a ‘Dispute Form’ – what to say, where to send it to, where you can get further advice and what will happen next. 

The toolkit will be of assistance to both tenants and advisors alike in showing that many tenants will have grounds in principle to challenge.
