Reply To: can Sheltered accommodation be Supported Exempt Accommodation?


I am resurrecting this thread!

So… we have various sheltered schemes for 55+. We have a number of working age claimants in these schemes who are making claims for HB as UC have directed them to us.

Their tenancy does not include any “support” charges, only personal alarms and housing related support such as budgeting, repairs, utilities and involvement activities.

I would say these are not exempt and the claimants need to claim their housing costs from UC?

Would I be correct??
