Are you or a relative affected by the changes to Support to Mortgage Interest and the HOLD Scheme?
HOLD stands for Home Ownership for People with Long-Term Disabilities and is a way that the Government used to assist people to have a share in a property. The Government were planning to remove or reduce this support, we understand.
Mencap has been speaking with Irwin Mitchell solicitors about SMI and the HOLD scheme, and a possible legal challenge to the changes and the way the Government has introduced them. Irwin Mitchell are aware of the changes and are looking into potentially taking this further with families who have contacted them.
They are keen to hear from more families. The contact is Polly Sweeney, email address: Polly.Sweeney@IrwinMitchell.com – please feel free to get in touch with her or pass on her details to other families.
