    If you're currently claiming for help with any rent through Universal Credit or Housing benefit then you can apply for a Discretionary Housing Payment from your Local Authority. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/claiming-discretionary-housing-payments/claiming-discretionary-housing-payments

    I don't know how much funding they will have left though because we are coming towards the end of the tax year. 
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
