Lilian visits Carroll Gardens in the Meadows

Lilian attended a meeting convened by the operators of Carroll Gardens, Housing & Care 21, who are complaining that the cap on housing benefit doesn’t recognise the value of the additional services provided by sheltered housing.   Lilian said "Residents have been absolutely clear about the value of living in supported housing like they've got here at Carroll Gardens. They have all got individual stories about how they have come here, how much they value their place and the sociable aspect of living in something like this.

"What it shows to me is that the Government's programme is to save money but it will do nothing of the sort, just push people into unsuitable accommodation and put extra pressure on the NHS. It wouldn't be good for them or our city."

 Lilian spoke to over 30 residents in front of staff from Housing & Care 21 and local media.
