A place to call home

The Dorset Citizens Advice Social Policy Campaign Group recently became aware that the lack of suitable, reasonably priced housing was being raised regularly by clients. Making up the shortfall is a problem for both working and non working households. Many are now being affected by the “under occupancy charge” commonly known as the “bedroom tax”.

We looked at how people can access housing within their means which meets their needs. Our findings can be downloaded here, and make dismal reading. Let us know if you are affected, and please give us any ideas on how we can work with local MPs and Councillors
