We are here to provide a quality service to our customers, both claimants and landlords.
We are responsible for dealing with two types of benefit:
- Housing Benefit
- Council Tax Benefit/ Reduction
We do not deal with applications for Income Support or Jobseeker's Allowance - these are dealt with by the Department of Work and Pensions or your local Jobcentre.
The rules for benefits are quite complicated so it is always good to contact us if you are in doubt over any part of your claim or our benefits services.
