Housing benefit

Good evening all, I’m a newbie here and just want to ask a question. I’m in receipt   of housing benefit, I’m on ESA, and PIP and have been told there’s a shortfall of £100 per month I have to find towards my rent? But I am managing in very little , is there anywhere I can get help? Many thanks in advance x

    Hi,

    Have they told you when there's a shortfall of £100 with your housing benefit?

    Do you rent privately or from housing association?
