Welfare benefits advice for council tenants

The H&F welfare benefits team provides welfare rights and debt advice to all council tenants. 

We are not currently running any face to face advice sessions at the moment due to the coronavirus. Council tenants can contact us using the form below or by phone or email to request a telephone appointment.

We can help with

  • benefit checks to identify benefits, grants and debt relief eligibility
  • applying for benefits and grants and other types of support
  • challenging incorrect decisions by requesting reconsiderations and providing appeal representation
  • debt and money advice, personal budgeting support to help you manage your finances
  • signposting and referral to other services and support such as Crosslight and the Credit Union.
