Discretionary Housing Payments (DHP) are made by us in certain circumstances to people that are receiving Universal Credit (Housing Element) but who may need further help with their Housing Costs.
Universal Credit does not include any help towards your Council Tax. You will need to apply for help with your council tax separately. Find out more.
To receive Universal Credit, you’ll need a bank or building society current account, or an account with an alternative provider like a credit union.
