Fraud comes in many forms, impacting the way we fund services. If you suspect any fraud against us, reporting it helps protect community resources.

Housing Benefit fraud

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) handles investigations into Housing Benefit fraud. Report any suspected Housing Benefit fraud directly to the DWP on the GOV.UK website.

Social housing fraud

We take social housing fraud seriously, including issues like sub-letting and false applications. Working with local housing associations, we investigate these thoroughly.

Single Person Council Tax Discount fraud

A 25% discount on Council Tax is available for single adult households. If you know of someone claiming this discount in a multi-adult household, please inform us.
