Cutting housing benefit for under 25s will not work - sign the petition below


John bw80,000 young people a year experience homelessness in the UK every year

We know that young people rely on housing benefit to keep a roof over their heads. These young people do not choose to become homeless. They are often forced out of home because of domestic violence or family breakdown. 

Young people like Claudette

For homeless young people, housing benefit is a short-term solution which provides the support they need to get a job and live an independent life - a life not reliant on benefits.

We fear the Prime Minister's plans would not only lead to more homelessness, but won't help young people into sustainable employment.

Sign the petition below. Support homeless young people.
