Our Benefits Calculator gives you an instant estimate of the help you may get with your rent or Council Tax. If you haven't claimed Universal Credit, Tax Credits or Pension Credits, the calculator can also tell you how much help you may get from these payments. These calculations are only an estimate based on the information you supply.
An application via email
Please email our Benefits team on firstname.lastname@example.org giving a brief outline as to your present circumstances, full name, address contact number and reason for claim.

We offer a home visiting service if you are unable to complete an application over the phone or you are unable to come into the Council Offices because you are ill or disabled. Appointments can be made by telephoning 01329 824646.
In each of the above cases, your claim can only be paid once all of the information that is requested of you is received. Any delay in submitting the necessary information may hold up the assessment process.
