We have someone who got UC for personal element but was in supported accommodation so got HB for rent. They then moved into general needs accommodation - can they stay on HB for rent (as within same LA area)  or is it UC?

It’s UC if already on UC - you can’t get a mix of HB and UC unless it is temp or supported accommodation
