Those residents currently staying in hotel accommodation are able to claim expenses for any food costs. Adults and children over the age of five can claim up to £300 each per week, and children under five can receive up to £150 per week to cover food costs.
People can choose to eat at their hotel or elsewhere depending on their preference. If people choose to eat at their hotel they can charge the costs to their hotel room. People can also make use of room service and charge it to their room, if available.
For more information, residents should speak to their key worker.
