Charities are calling for an end to the single room rent restriction.
As part of our ongoing series, “No Home”, today we focus on a government housing benefit which landlords and charities accuse of directly leading to homelessness. It’s called the Single Room Rent Restriction and Liz Phelps from Citizens Advice explains who this benefit covers and what it's meant to do. We then hear from Benefits Minister James Plaskett. We also hear from a young resident of the YMCA in Dartford in Kent who told us how not being able to get the full housing benefit led to him becoming homeless.
