Are you struggling to pay your rent? This website has been designed to give you information on how benefit changes could have affected you and how making the most of your money can keep your home secure.

Making the most of your money can help you avoid getting into trouble with your landlord - as well as allowing you to spend on the things you choose. We offer a free and independent assessment of your income and expenses to see how you can make the most of your money.
