We have these schemes in both authorities I work across and I’m happy to pay them. The rent – £200.00 per week – is high compared to the shared accommodation rate but low compared to other supported housing schemes. The pure rent is reasonable and Barnardos have justified the service charges. I don’t think maximising HB on its own counts as contrivance.
