Our chargesResidents pay a weekly maintenance contribution (WMC) towards the cost of their accommodation and the services provided, and this is normally reviewed annually. The majority of our residents receive housing benefit that covers most if not all of the WMC. In addition, all residents pay a contribution towards the cost of providing heating and hot water; this is not eligible for state benefit. Residents are responsible for their own council tax, electricity, and telephone charges. The Clerk to the Trustees is available to advise and support residents in applying for Housing Benefit and Council Tax Benefit.
