Other ways you can get an extra bedroom

A further bedroom is allowed if you:

  • have any child or ‘qualifying young person’ (ie a young person under the age of 20 who you get child benefit for) placed with you for adoption; 
  • are a foster parent (or, in Scotland, a kinship carer);  or

  • (for a period of up to 52 weeks only) have been approved as a foster parent but do not currently have a child/qualifying young person placed with you*. 
* You can argue that this should also apply if you are an approved carer under an adult placement scheme.
