We have just produced a poster of these years LHA rates. There are increases from the 2018 rates for three of the accommodation sizes. You can download the poster on a PDF using the link below:
Don’t forget of course that the LHA rate is the maximum amount we will pay for a claimant in each size of accommodation. It is not necessarily the amount we will pay after we have applied all the normal rules in calculating someone’s entitlement.
On a completely separate subject; with only very rare exceptions we won’t post on the blog about subjects that aren’t directly concerned with housing, landlord or benefit issues. The blog is after all for a specific purpose – but there’s the odd subject I’ll break the rule for. I’m happy to do that here as this is for some of Sandwell’s most vulnerable children. Please see the poster below from my colleagues in the Sandwell’s Children’s Trust.
It’s too late for the first event which was in March – but there are two other events coming up. If you think you might be interested in fostering, please do give it some thought. You’ll find more information on the Sandwell Fostering Facebook page.
