Benefit advice

If you are experiencing problems with your money or benefits, we may be able to help you.

We understand that benefits can be complex and you might not be aware of the wide range of benefits you may be entitled to.  Our employment and money advice team can provide information and advice on a wide range of welfare entitlements including:

  • Housing Benefit

  • Council Tax Support

  • Income Support

  • Job Seekers Allowance

  • Employment Support Allowance

  • Child and Working Tax Credit

  • Disability Living Allowance

  • Personal Independence Payments

  • Attendance Allowance

  • Pension Credits

  • Universal Credit

We work closely with other agencies, so even if you are claiming the money you are entitled to, they may be able to help you to access other types of help – including debt advice, energy efficiency advice and tenancy support.


What else can we do?

There are other ways we can help if you are struggling with your money:

  • Help you to apply for money from Trust funds or charities to assist with debts and bills;

  • Help you to claim a Discretionary Housing Payment if your Housing Benefit doesn't cover all your rent;  

  • Help you get support through the Local Support & Prevention Fund if you are struggling to set up home or in a crisis situation.

  • Advice on getting loans and saving money with your local credit union.
