Discretionary hardship support
Find out what other financial assistance you could get
If you wish to apply for any local discretionary funding, you must be a resident within Barking and Dagenham, unless you have been placed outside our borough by our homeless team. If you live outside the borough you should apply to your local Council. If you are unsure who your local Council is, you can find out on the GOV website. If you have been placed in temporary accommodation in our borough by another local authority, then the only scheme you can only apply for is the Discretionary Council Tax Relief scheme if you have a liability to pay council tax with Barking and Dagenham. Please apply to the Local Authority that placed you for help with hardship or a DHP.
