Benefits and help

From help with your council tax, housing benefits, Universal Credit and other support service, you can find financial assistance from us here.

Change in circumstances

If you claim benefits and your circumstances change you need to tell us as soon as possible, at least within one calendar month of when the change happened.

Council Tax Support

You may be able to get help with your Council Tax if you are, or someone who lives with you is, on a low income or disabled


If you get more housing benefit or council tax support than you are entitled to, this is called an overpayment and you will usually have to pay the money back
