Housing Benefit

Important Housing Service Announcement - Wednesday 23 April 2014: As part of our continued drive towards service excellence the Housing Service has planned a training day on 23rd April.

Whilst we will remain open to customers we will be operating a reduced service. If you need emergency assistance on that day then our service will be available. However, if possible, please either come to see us before or after that day. Thank you.

What is Housing Benefit?

Housing Benefit is a national scheme to help those on low income and capital to pay their rent. 

All or part of your rent may be paid for you through Housing Benefit. It is sometimes called rent rebate or rent allowance.

Where can I go to speak to someone about my benefits?
