On our main site there has been some discussion around bedroom tax and how it has affected one Gransnetter and forcing her to move to smaller accommodation which is proving difficult. Have YOU been affected by the bedroom tax and do you have any tips for other people in the same position?

I live near Newcastle and it does not affect anyone over 60, good news for anyone like me who is dreading having to move from home if the future brings poverty

geordiesilverfish - thats excellent news! In the area that I work in (Bath) it doesnt affect anyone living in sheltered or supported accommodation, but I think it does for anyone outside of these areas. I guess it varies from place to place a bit
