Hello,

Wondering if anyone has experience of how this scheme functions under UC. This arrangement is when a client with a learning disability is housed in a family home, and rent is paid from the client to the main owner/tenant. In this circumstance, the landlord is whoever owns/rents the property and Shared Lives is the managing agent.

Previously, HB was paid directly to Shared Lives, and they paid the landlords.

Is this possible under UC? Shared Lives is a department in the council.

Many thanks
