Tell us if you disagree with our decision
We look into each individual claim for Discretionary Housing Payment. Our aim is to prevent you from losing your home, or help you move into affordable accommodation.
Your tenancy must be sustainable and affordable moving forward. Discretionary Housing Payments are usually a temporary solution.
Even if you or your partner meet some, or all the criteria, we still might not be able to give you a Discretionary Housing Payment.
