Talk to us – Benefits advice

If you are affected by the Bedroom Tax, Welfare Reform or Universal Credit, call our Welfare Advisors.

Our Welfare Advisors are here to listen and help.

They can review your benefits and work out whether you are eligible for a Discretionary Housing Payment or other financial assistance.

The Welfare Advisors will look at the bigger picture, working with individuals and families to find solutions to problems. If it means you will need to move home, you will need to register for HomeChoice or HomeSwapper we can assist with identifying if there is possible funding to help with removal costs.
