Housing benefit and council tax support

Housing benefit helps people on a low income to pay their rent.  The amount of benefit you get will depend on your circumstances, and how much rent you pay.

The government has ended the council tax benefit scheme. It has been replaced with a new locally run scheme called council tax support.

Council tax support is a discount that helps people on low income to pay their council tax. The amount of support you get will depend on your circumstances and how much council tax you pay.

Benefit fraud

Benefit cheats steal from everyone. If you are suspicious, report it.
