What should I do next?
Before you make a decision about your housing situation, make sure you’re fully informed about your options. Take a look at these resources:
Take action if you’re struggling with your rent; talk to your housing provider or landlord. There are also several local organisations that can help you.
Get advice from organisations like Citizens Advice and/or a debt advisor.
If you cannot afford the shortfall between your rent and your Housing Benefit you may be able to get extra help through Discretionary Housing Payments. These are short-term awards and should not be relied on as a permanent additional income.
