Housing Benefit

(sometimes referred to as Rent Rebate)

If you are on a low income or receiving a state welfare benefit you may be entitled to Housing Benefit to help pay your rent, either all or part of it. You will need to complete a Housing Benefit claim form for this to be assessed.

You can download the Housing Benefit claim form by clicking the document on the right hand side.

You can also request a Housing Benefit claim form by contacting the Benefits Section on 0300 1234 105 (option 1 then option 2).

If you experience any problems completing the form or require any further advice please contact the Reception on 0300 1234 105 option 1, then option 2 where assistance will be given.

Please note it is your responsibility to get a claim registered with the Housing Benefit Department. Any delay may result in a period where full rent is payable.
