You could get Housing Benefit to help you pay your rent if you’re on a low income.
Housing Benefit can pay for part or all of your rent. How much you get depends on your income and circumstances. You can apply for it whether you’re unemployed or working.
If you've been claiming Housing Benefit since before April 8 2008, be aware that the rules are now different and you may be entitled to less benefit if you make a new claim.
