If your landlord is Brighton & Hove City Council; or you are a leaseholder of the Council (you own a flat and pay the council for maintenance and ground rent), we can arrange a telephone or face to face appointment with you to help you with any personal debts or benefit issue. We can advise you on things like:

  • whether an IVA is a good way to deal with your debts (it probably isn’t),
  • getting your debts written-off with a Debt Relief Order,
  • working out what you can afford to pay and what you need to pay to people you owe money to,
  • making a claim for disability benefits,
  • finding out whether you would be better off on Universal Credit,
  • appealing a benefit decision you don’t agree with
  • working out a way to pay your water bill

We are able to see people face to face again at our office in Hove and hope to be back at other places around the city soon.

If you are a council tenant or council leaseholder and would like help with debts or benefits please call 0808 196 3699 (free) and ask for Madeleine or email tenants@moneyadviceplus.org.uk.

To talk to an adviser directly to see if they can answer your question without waiting for an appointment you could ring our Moneyworks Adviceline.
