Thread: Housing discretionary payments question

    Housing discretionary payments question

    Hi everyone

    Can someone tell me the criteria for discretionary housing payments? How do you qualify for them? What benefits do you have to be on and do they allow any savings?

    Many thanks.

    They are run by the council, and each council has its own rules.

    Your best bet to start with is to look on your councils website.
    I don't know everything. - But I'm good at searching for, and finding, stuff.
