Benefit Support

Guide to benefits

Our Tenancy Support Team offer a tailored benefits advice service to our tenants, household members and anyone applying for a property with us. They can help with general information and guidance, a benefits/grant check, making a claim online, filling out forms and pursuing benefit reconsiderations and appeals.

If you need help or advice, please contact our Tenancy Support team on:

Benefit advice and information can also be found on the GOV.UK website

You can use an independent, free and anonymous benefits calculator to check what you could be entitled to. This will give you an estimate of: 

  • The benefits you could get
  • How much your benefit payments could be
  • How your benefits will be affected if you start work or increase your hours
  • How your benefits will be affected if your circumstances change - for example if you have a child or someone moves out of your home
