Carers UK research on the bedroom tax

In July 2013, Carers UK published research showing that the Government is failing to protect carers and disabled people from ‘spare room’ cuts.

The findings include:

  • Three quarters (75%) of carers having to pay the ‘bedroom tax’ are being forced to cut back on essential spending on food, electricity and heating.
  • One in six (17%) are falling behind on their rent and face eviction.
