Rent supplements will not be increased


The Department of Social Protection has reviewed the rent supplement amounts, and has decided that they will remain at current levels.

The outcome of such review concluded that increasing the limits would likely lead to landlords upping rents, and that tenants such as low income workers and students would be adversely affected.

After becoming aware of this decision, the Simon Community has expressed its deep dissatisfaction and added that more people will be forced into homelessness.
