Benefits advice & welfare changes

Dont suffer in silence call our rent team for help if you can't pay your rent Many customers will be affected by Government reforms to the welfare and benefits system.

The changes may mean you have to make claims in new ways and, in the case of Universal Credit, become responsible for paying all your rent yourself.

Some customers may find that the amount they have to live on drops or is temporarily suspended. If you are struggling to pay your rent, talk to our Income Team who can help you .
