    Not sure if this is the right Forum or not but I have a question about HB rates for people Leaving Care as I keep getting contradictory info on this.

    If a Care Leaver is in supported lodgings but is only renting a room and shares kitchen/bathroom etc are they still entitled to up to the one bed rate or can they only claim the maxiumum HB for shared accomodation?

    The same question applies for B+B. If they only have a room in a B+B can they claim the one bed rate for this or does the Care Leaver have to actually need to be renting a one bed flat to get this rate?
