Apply for Housing Benefit and Council Tax Support

Applying for Benefits

Request an application form

Housing Benefit and Council Tax Support is awarded from the Monday after we receive your claim form.  Don't delay making your claim because you can't get the evidence we need.  Make your claim and provide the evidence later, as long as it's within 30 days.

We could be able to 'Fast Track' and process your new benefit/support claim within 10 working days, if you bring in all the required evidence mentioned on the claim form.
