Let full-time students qualify for housing benefit.
This petition had 20 supporters
With all the recent budget cuts and cuts to student finance & funding, housing benefit would significantly reduce the amount of student debt (without taking into account tuition loans and student loans)
All too often students are struggling to make rent payments with the minimal amount of help available to them.
Full-time mature students, with dependent children, who live in local authority housing should definitely qualify for housing benefit - instead, there are people who are trying to better their lives by getting back into education, yet being taken to court and evicted due to physically not being able to afford to pay for rent that they should be entitled too - with very little/no compassion from housing associations and councils.
Lets stop this from happening!!
