Discretionary Housing Payments can help if there is a shortfall between your rent and the housing benefit you receive.

Each case is considered on its own merits and both the financial and personal circumstances of the individual are taken into account, along with any steps that the applicant is taking to address the situation with any shortfall, and maximising what other support is available to them.

Any award which is granted will be credited to your benefits payments.
