The Bedroom Tax is ill-thought-out and we oppose it.

It's set to hit over 100,000 households across Scotland from 1st April this year as a result of the UK Government’s welfare reform plans.

We want Scottish Ministers to act and protect Scotland's tenants who are under threat.

We have set out a three-point plan to ask the Scottish Government for:

  • a guarantee that no-one should be evicted for Bedroom Tax arrears
  • no-one to be deemed intentionally homeless if evicted for Bedroom Tax arrears
  • make up to £50 million available this year to protect social landlords from bankruptcy

How the bedroom tax is affecting you:

Frightened tenants need reassurance that they are not going to lose their homes because of this 'Draconian' reform
Penalising people for having an extra room assumes that there is a ready supply of smaller or shared properties for them to move to. This is simply not the case across Scotland.
It's time the Westminster Government reversed this mean-spirited reform and sent the bedroom tax to 'never-never land' where it belongs
