If you are on a low income you may be able to claim benefit towards the payment of your rent.

It is your responsibility to ensure you claim and received the benefits which are entitled to.

To see if you will qualify for the housing element of universal credit or housing benefit for help towards the rent, you can use the online calculator to work out how much you may get.

If you do not have access to the internet, Charnwood Borough Council or the housing income team can do this for you. Please remember the online calculator is only an estimate, and if you apply, you will receive notification from universal credit or a letter from the Council confirming the amount of benefit once it has been assessed.

For more information on housing benefit contact 03456 091258 or apply online.

You can apply for universal credit via the Government website.
