Housing Benefit is a national welfare benefit
whereas Council Tax Reduction is a local scheme. Both of these
are administered by us to help people on low incomes to pay their
rent and Council Tax.
Please note we can only provide advice or
process applications for residents of Kensington and Chelsea. If
you do not live in the borough please visit http://www.gov.uk/ for local information
or seek information from your local authority.
