|Couple requiring separate rooms for medical reasons|
|Parent (s) with one child|
|Parent (s) with one girl and one boy both under 10 years|
|Parent (s) with two same sex children aged 10-20|
|Single person or couple with one girl and one boy where the oldest child is over 10 years|
|Single person or couple with two same sex children where the oldest child is over 21 years|
|Single person or couple with three or four children *|
|Single person or couple with five or more children *|
* The maximum number of bedrooms will follow the rule for age and sex separation given for families with two children. Non-dependent children over 21,cousins, grandchildren and other relatives will normally be assessed using the same rules.
