Help with paying rent and council tax
Are you struggling to pay rent on your council house?
If you need help paying your rent, in most cases, you will now need to apply for Universal Credit.
If you get housing benefit and are struggling financially, you could get some additional help from a short-term Discretionary Housing Payment (DHP).
Are you struggling to pay your council tax?
If you need help paying your council tax you may be able to get council tax support. If you receive Universal Credit , this will not cover council tax. You'll need to claim council tax support separately.
