Universal Credit Bedroom Allowance

edited July 2023 in Universal Credit (UC)

I am moving to a new house which has 3 bedrooms. One of the bedrooms is for a carer but the 3rd bedroom I am planning to use as a home office for my volunteer work and also a sensory area. I know that some councils will discount their council tax room allowance if you have a sensory room and I was wondering whether UC do the same? Alternatively, is there a discount for having a home office from which to work/volunteer? Thanks
