Report benefit fraud

If people commit fraud against the Council it can mean higher taxes and reduced services. Each day members of the public help us by reporting their concerns. You can help too, by:

  • report suspected fraud using our online form
  • call our local confidential free 24-hour fraud hotline on 0800 328 0572

Because we take our responsibility to stop fraud seriously, we work closely with the Department for Work and Pensions to prevent and find benefit fraud. In most cases it will be that Government Department that investigates your allegation, with the assistance of our own Fraud Prevention Team.

Prefer to inform the Government Department directly?

That's no problem, you can help by contacting them via:
