Discretionary housing payments

When should I apply for a discretionary housing/hardship payment?

If you receive Housing Benefit or the Housing Element of Universal Credit and this does not cover your full rent and you are finding it difficult to pay, you could apply for a Discretionary Housing Payment.

If you receive Council Tax Support and this does not cover your full Council Tax charge and you are finding it difficult to pay, you could apply for a Discretionary Hardship Payment.
