Working tax credits and housing benefits for under 25's

Currently you have to be over the age of 25 to be entitled to full housing benefits and working tax credits, which is unfair to many people aged under the age of 25 due to the fact that housing costs are the same for under 25's as it is for over 25’s, due to this many under 25's cannot support themselves properly when it comes to paying there rent and face homelessness and cannot afford to start there own businesses due to being unable to claim working tax credits even though they work just as hard as people aged over 25.

Action the government should take: Lower the age for full housing benefits and for working tax credits from over 25's to 16+ or 18+
