Reply To: DHPs linked to homelessness prevention / temporary accomm


I have had some experience in this area, where we did look at utilising DHP funding in some way, however, we abandoned the idea as our homelessness department would not allocate a property to a customer until they could ascertain whether DHP would be paid.

Obviously, this in effect amounts to taking advantage of the HB system/conflict of interest etc etc…

We therefore shelved the idea as DHP payments must be considered on the merits of each individual circumstance and therefore no ‘blanket’ arrangement could be reached.

Hope this helps! :6:
