The Council delivers Council Tax Reduction and Housing Benefit
Council Tax changes:
Local authorities instead of Government, now deliver their own Council Tax support schemes. This is called Council Tax Reduction.
Housing benefit changes:
There are now changes to how housing benefit for social housing is calculated for people who have one or more "spare" bedrooms.
What other benefits might I be entitled to?
You can visit www.gov.uk to work out whether you may be entitled to any other state benefits or financial help, such as Working Tax Credit, Child Tax Credits or Job Seekers Allowance.
