To Philip Hammond - Chancellor of the Exchequer

Petition text

End the freeze on Local Housing Allowance.

Why is this important?

Skyrocketing rent and rising bills means it’s harder than ever to get by. But the government’s refusal to increase support for people who work hard but can’t afford their rent means thousands of people are being forced into homelessness.

The official spending watchdog has slammed the government for the shocking rise in homelessness. They’ve raised the alarm, but it’s going to need a huge show of public outrage to convince Philip Hammond to act.

Can you sign the petition to Philp Hammond and ask him to end the freeze on housing allowance?
