If you are unable to access the website or have additional needs, we can supply a paper form from our Contact Burnley offices on Parker Lane, Burnley.

Discretionary housing payments are intended to help claimants who are receiving housing benefit but the amount they are receiving does not cover the full rent they are charged.
