Housing Benefit

You could get Housing Benefit to help you pay your rent if you're on a low income, whether you're unemployed or working.

You can only claim Housing Benefit if you have 3 or more children, live in supportedĀ  or temporary accommodation or are of pensionable age.

If the above does not apply to you, you may beĀ eligible to claim universal credit
