Housing Association defends creme egg offer

A housing association which offered a free Creme Egg to tenants affected by the so-called 'bedroom tax' has defended its offer.

The letter of thanks and small gesture of the Crème Egg is an important recognition to those tenants who have struggled to find additional rent due to the UK government imposed bedroom tax policy. The initiative was supported by tenants on our Welfare Reform working group.

We always need to engage and keep the debate alive and the invitation to attend one of our regular walk-in sessions in Bridgend and pick up a free Crème Egg over Easter was a way of reminding tenants that even during the school holidays staff are available to help with financial advice.
