Supplying evidence for an application
If you need to supply any evidence to support your benefits or council tax claim or application or let know about a change in circumstances, please use our evidence upload form.
Evidence could include proof of occupation, bank statements, wage slips, student certificate or evidence for a disabled band reduction. Simply take a photo of the evidence on your smart phone or tablet or alternatively a scanned image, complete the form and attach the image and submit the form. It is easy to use and much quicker than travelling to the civic centre to hand in the evidence in person.
