    Doorstep and YMCA Humber say the potential changes – announced in the Queen’s Speech – are “in danger of leaving young people homeless and with nowhere to live”, reports the Grimsby Telegraph.

    Julie Walmsley, senior manager of Doorstep, said: “Charities in this region understand the need for the government to reduce the levels of youth unemployment and the overall spend on welfare. There are long-term consequences for removing housing benefit for this age group. The misconception is that young people are abusing the system, when in reality, it’s not a choice but a necessity. For many of these young people, returning home is not an option and housing benefit is the only thing separating them from the street.”
