We also have a dedicated team of tenancy support advisors (TSAs) who are available for more complex financial and benefit issues. We know that making a benefit claim will be new to many of you, so our TSAs are there to help you understand what you’re entitled to and how to claim. If you ring us we can transfer you directly to them as we’ve removed our formal referral process to make it easier for you to get advice at the moment.
