Use this form to apply for Housing Benefit if you’re on a low income. You can also apply for Council Tax Support at the same time. You can't apply for Housing Benefit if you already receive, or are eligible for Universal Credit.

If you have recently made a new claim you may have been asked to come to the Civic Centre to present identification documents. Due to the current health situation we have decided not to verify identification documents this way. Instead of coming in to the Civic Centre please scan or photograph the documents and submit them to send evidence for a Housing Benefit and, or Council Tax Support claim
