Housing Benefit and Council Tax Reduction

Discretionary Housing Payment

If you are likely to suffer hardship because your benefit does not cover your rent in full, we may be able to help. We will look at your personal and financial circumstances.

We have a very limited amount of money for this purpose. It can only be awarded where a person is in receipt of Housing Benefit in the same week that a Discretionary Housing Payment is awarded.

Apply

If you have an overnight carer - apply for an additional bedroom to be taken into account
