In supported housing the rent is paid via housing benefit if you are not working or on a low income. If you are receiving housing benefit your rent will be paid directly to Doorstep on a monthly basis. In our shared housing you will pay a weekly top-up on your rent. In flats and family housing your full rent is paid directly to Doorstep.
If you are on universal credit and receiving the housing element, this money is automatically paid to you and you are responsible for paying it to Doorstep. A request can be made to the DWP to ask if your rent can be paid directly to us.
If you are working you will be fully or partly liable for your rent depending on how much you earn. Some tenants are eligible for housing top-ups if they are on a low income.
