    I am a benefit assistant at a LA. So far my LA have not briefed staff on the upcoming changes, and have not held any consultation meetings with local landlords. In fact they do not seem to be doing anything.

    Should I be worried?



    How about forwarding your manager a copy of the HBINFO newsletter with details of LHA training etc?

    This has been 5 years in the making so there is little excuse not to be ready in time.


    Hopefully they’ve done loads of work behind the scenes.

    While we’re not having a landlords forum until tomorrow and won’t commence staff training untill mid February, we’ve been working on bringing LHA in since last summer with a dedicated project team in place from September.

    If they really haven’t done anything yet then they are leaving things a little late in the day 😯


    Our project team has been in place since the summer but hardly anyone knew the project team existed until we did LHA awareness sessions, so it is possible that you just don’t know they are preparing, but by now I would say that it should at least be mentioned.

    We are carrying out our staff training mid Feb to March, we did awareness sessions late November so all our staff and managers knew there was a change and that we were preparing for it.

    I think you need to do as Peter suggested and forward on a copy of the HBINFO newsletter with perhaps a subtle query as to when the staff training is!

    I think it’s really important that you keep staff informed of any changes, and try to involve them where possible.
