Discontinuation will continue to be processed, but anything that falls on the 23rd December through to and including 2nd January will have the end of grace period moved to 3rd January. This covers the whole festive period and the additional bank holiday in Scotland.
Last date for evictions on discontinuations – 22nd December 2023
First day for evictions to recommence – 3rd January 2024.
These dates apply across the UK.
No service user should now get a letter with a support cessation date between 23rd December and 2nd January – if colleagues in homelessness services do see any cases like this, please can you ask them to direct the individual to the email@example.com where a reinstatement can be requested.
