Our main function is to administer applications for Housing Benefit and Council Tax Reduction for residents within the borough.

Housing Benefit is available to people on low income who are renting their homes to help them afford to pay the rent.

Council Tax Reduction is available for those on low incomes where council tax is payable on a domestic dwelling.  The public consultation regarding changes to this scheme for 2017/18 is now closed.
