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 specialist Welfare Benefit advice team provides information and advice to our tenants, on the whole range of welfare entitlements including Housing Benefit, Universal Credit, Tax Credits, Council Tax Support, Income Support or PIP.
Our advisors 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 they do? There are other ways they can help if you are struggling with your money from help to apply for money from Group funds, to Discretionary Housing Payments from the local council and accessing low cost loans from your local Credit Union.
Most importantly…Please don't bury your head in the sand if you are having money problems, speak to our team to see if we can help.
