Dss discrimination continued

I contacted 15 letting agencies and landlords in the Birmingham area who do not allow Dss and questioned them about what form of benefit would not be accepted.

All of them said that it was people on housing benefits that they would not accept and when questioned about disability benefits, all said that people receiving this would be considered.

Whilst I will continue to contact landlords about this matter, it seems that discrimination against disabled people through “No Dss” signs is not a huge issue in the Birmingham area however, I have contacted the charity Scope about this and am still awaiting a reply.

Next I will contact letting agencies to question them about why they do not allow Dss and will find case studies and interviews from people who have been affected by this and may be further affected by the Bedroom Tax.
