(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 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 at the Town Hall on 0300 1234 105 option 5 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.
