    Struggling to pay for your rent? Your Council can help you

    Tenants who find themselves struggling to pay for their rent are encouraged to contact Mendip District Council's Housing Options Team for advice and support, as early as possible, to help prevent them becoming homeless.
    The Council's experienced and knowledgeable Officers are on hand to assist tenants facing financial difficulties, and find solutions to ensure residents do not become homeless.

    Mendip District Council received funding from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing & Communities to create a Tenancy Hardship Scheme. The scheme is ringfenced to support low-income renters, with Covid-19-related rent arrears, through a one-off payment, to reduce the risk of them being evicted and becoming homeless.
    To access the Tenancy Hardship Scheme, please contact the Housing Options Team by calling 0300 303 8588 or visit the Council's website at
