This application form is for you and your household to claim any extra help that we can provide. This could be delaying your Council Tax payments, financial support through a Discretionary Housing Payment (DHPs) & Exceptional Hardship Fund (EHF) and other help with essentials.

This form has been updated to include the Devon County Council Hardship Fund.

Please answer for your household; for example, if you have been made redundant but your partner is still employed, please include this information in the last section on the form called "Please give a brief explanation". This will make sure any help you may be entitled to is not delayed.

Please complete the online form by clicking on the blue start button.
