Community Housing Cymru say that the changes to housing benefit will hit thousands of people right across Wales. The organisation that represents Housing Associations says it will lead to an increase in homelessness.
It follows claims from The Welsh Tenants Federation that 4,000 families in Wales could lose their home as a result of changes to the amount of housing benefit they receive.

There is simply not enough affordable housing in Wales to enable people to downsize to a smaller properties. We need to urgently build more affordable homes and our members are working on innovative ways to deliver more with less. New affordable homes would also boost the economy and provide much needed jobs.
