Universal credit specified accommodation

Back

‘Specified accommodation’ is:

  • accommodation provided by a non-metropolitan county council, housing association, registered social landlord, registered charity or voluntary organisation, where you are given ‘care, support or supervision’;

  • a local authority hostel or accommodation provided by a housing association, registered charity, voluntary organisation or English county council in which you get care, support or supervision; or

  • accommodation in a refuge provided by a local authority or a housing association, registered charity, voluntary organisation or English county council because you have left home as a result of domestic violence.

Such accommodation will continue to be met through housing benefit, rather than universal credit.
