Debt advice for council tenants and leaseholders

This service is free of charge and is available to all council tenants who are experiencing financial problems.

We can:

  • check your benefits to make sure you’re receiving all the right benefits
  • help you prepare a personal budget sheet which shows your income and expenditure
  • work out how much you can afford to pay towards priority debts like rent, council tax, gas and electricity
  • contact the people you owe money to and negotiate affordable payments
  • give general advice on everything from basic money management, fuel efficiency, and county court proceedings
