The support charge will be included in your rent payment.

The full support charge is made up of three parts:

  • a charge for the Home Safeguard alarm equipment
  • a charge for the support service that we provide to keep you independent
  • a charge for the housing management service given by the mobile support officers

Tenants on full Housing Benefit will not have to pay the housing management element of the charge, while those on partial housing benefit may pay some of the charge.
