Apply for Housing Benefit

Before you apply

If you or your partner is of working age and you are seeking assistance with your rent, please first check if you should apply for  Universal Credit.

We prefer you apply online. This speeds things up, saves public money and frees up time so we can support those who are unable to apply online.

 

I need help applying

Contact us and we can support you through the process.

Sending us your documents

Send your form to us as soon as possible, even if you don't have all the requested documents. This means we can begin processing your application as quickly as possible.

We need original copies of proof of your identity and national insurance number. You can come in to our offices.
