The Council is committed to combating Benefit Fraud and works closely with the Department for Work and Pensions to assist with the investigation of any cases where a government benefit or an award of local council tax support has been falsely claimed.
You commit benefit fraud by either:
intentionally not reporting a change in your circumstances
being dishonest in order to get benefits
