A key feature of every hostel resident's personal action plan is their move on goal.
For the majority of people living in hostels in London their most likely move on option will be into the private rented sector.
The Welfare Reform Act has imposed financial restrictions on Housing Benefit and in part the Local Housing Allowance (LHA). For many people the aspiration of living in an accommodation of their choice is no longer in their hands but is determined by the rent caps.
Residents moving into the private sector who still require a degree of support are sign posted to appropriate support services, including floating support.
