31 MAR The Guardian OnlineLeading housing and care specialists Blackwood have grabbed headlines thanks to their work which achieved Bedroom Tax exclusions for affected customers.

Blackwood set up a dedicated team last year to help their tenants, all of whom have disabilities, navigate their way through the complexities of benefit changes, including the controversial Bedroom Tax. Many of those living in specially adapted homes face uncertainty over the Bedroom Tax as downsizing would mean huge costs and upheaval to adapt new homes to their specific needs.01 APR Property Reporter Online

The newspaper uploaded the coverage onto their website, creating buzz around Blackwood’s latest move. The full article can be read here at the Guardian Online.
