I have recently been made redundant but I have applied for a house. How do I apply for housing benefit and would I be eligible for the help with the deposit?
If you need to make a new claim for housing benefit it would now be universal credit you apply for. There is a housing element in UC that replaces housing benefit. See Crisis to search for rent deposit schemes where you live. Please call the Lone Parent Helpline on 0808 801 0323 if you need more advice about claiming universal credit.
