Benefits & Welfare Reform



Benefit Changes. 
Many of our tenants receive benefits of one kind or another and almost all benefits have been affected by the welfare reforms. Please click on the side tabs for further information on specific changes.

What can I do to prepare for these changes?
There are a number of key steps to take to ensure you are prepared for the changes: knowing what benefit you receive, being aware of the income and age of anyone living within your home and ensuring you have a  bank account for your benefit payments to be paid into, are some of the initial steps we would advise taking.
We understand however, taking these steps and knowing exactly how the changes will affect you can be both a challenging and daunting experience. If you feel you need any help or information please contact your area housing manager or Hastoe Hub on 0300 123 2250.
