Cardiff Council has set aside some money for people who will be affected by these changes. If you are affected by the Bedroom Tax, then you may qualify for some financial assistance.
This assistance may be found through applying for the Discretionary Housing Payment (DHP).
If you are in severe financial hardship and have an exceptional circumstance, you can consider applying for DHP.
If you are unsure if you can apply, or would like some assistance to complete the form, please contact the Rents Team.
