Fraud and Irregularities

Reporting fraud

If you suspect someone is committing fraud you can contact us in confidence. The more information that you can provide the better our investigation will be. Any information that you give will be treated in the strictest of confidence and you do not need to tell us your name. 

For more information, see our Types of fraud page.

We no longer investigate Housing Benefit Fraud. Instead it is investigated by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). Residents who suspect that someone is committing Housing Benefit Fraud should call the DWP National Benefit Fraud Hotline 0800 854 440

We are also responsible for investigating Whistleblowing concerns.
