Housing Benefit - Are you eligible?
You can only make a new claim to Housing Benefit if:
- You are a pensioner
- You live in supported or specified accommodation (if you are not sure if this applies to you then please call the Benefits Team on 01524 582965)
- You live in temporary accommodation and have been placed there by the council’s housing options team
If you don’t fall into one of these categories and need help with your housing costs you should apply for Universal Credit from the DWP at https://www.gov.uk/apply-universal-credit
