Help with benefit changes

From April 2023 the Government is making big changes to benefits.

These changes could affect the amount of benefits you receive and how benefits are paid to you.

If you receive benefits, whether that's housing benefit, employment support allowance, working tax credits, or any other welfare benefit, you will be affected.
