Charis aims to help those within our eligibility group who do not have funding and who are eligible for housing benefit here. The housing benefit pays for most of the board and lodging costs.
The cost of the group recovery programme (currently over £ 200 per week) will be paid by Charis. This programme is free of charge and offered on a voluntary basis.
Whilst on the Primary Programme the Resident receives personal expenses of £24.90 a week only. All other money (except DLA/PIP mobility component) goes towards the gross cost of his stay.
There are no extra charges.
Sponsorship (Free Group Recovery Programme) Places
Charis is able to offer places on a housing benefit basis with the group recovery aspect offered freely and not conditional on residence. Charis raises money specifically for this purpose. Any applicant for such places would need to be eligible for housing benefit here. They would also need to contribute from their benefits towards their housing and support costs. They would be left with £24.90 personal expenses. DLA mobility is exempt from this but fares would not be provided by us in these situations.
