Benefits

We offer assessment and advice about entitlement to Housing Benefit and Council Tax Support. Use our website to calculate your entitlement, make a new claim, tell us about changes to your circumstances and view your Housing Benefit account.

If you need help paying your rent, you can claim Universal Credit unless you live in temporary or supported accommodation, have more than two children or are of state pension age. If any of these apply, you should claim Housing Benefit instead.
