Housing benefit claimaints aged 14 and 15

Josh Collins made this Freedom of Information request to Rossendale Borough Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Rossendale Borough Council should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Rossendale Borough Council,

Your homelessness strategy defines support for “homeless” 14 year olds

Please provide me with the number of 14 and 15 year olds in support of housing benefit for 15/16 and 16/17

If they are not in receipt of housing benefit, please explain what support they are in receipt of and how this is funded. Please include figures for the same year

Similarly, if the support includes a mix of strategies, please include the total number for each of these years with the number claiming housing benefit listed separately

Yours faithfully,

Josh Collins

Dear Rossendale Borough Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Rossendale Borough Council's handling of my FOI request 'Housing benefit claimaints aged 14 and 15'.

Lancashire’s homeless strategy is different to Rossendale’s. Rossendale’s explicitly mentions support for homeless 14 and 15 year olds. Please respond to my request

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/h...

Yours faithfully,

Josh Collins

Good Morning Mr Collins

 

Can you please confirm the FOI reference number so that I can forward this
on for a review.

Joanna
