Benefits and welfare changes

The government is making, and has already made, big changes to working-age benefits since 2013. Changes such as the “Bedroom Tax”- reducing Housing Benefit for working age tenants with ‘extra’ bedrooms, and Universal Credit – where all payments, including those to cover your rent- are made monthly directly to you.

Some of these changes might make it more difficult for you to pay your rent. Remember - your rent is your responsibility, but Alliance Homes is here to help if you are having money worries.

We can also help you with mutual exchanges, transfers, or applications for Discretionary Housing Payments. Contact us on 03000 120 120 or contact us online.
