Housing benefit

You won't need to pay for support in supported housing if you're entitled to Housing Benefit or receive Universal Credit towards your eligible rent costs.

The mobile wardens who regularly visit sites carry out housing management tasks relating to the running of the site, monitoring and reporting requirements in communal areas and supporting the lettings of empty homes. 

There is a weekly charge for this of £6.74 included as a rent service charge which is eligible for the assessment of Housing Benefit and Universal Credit.
