The average loss is £14 per week, meaning that paying the Bedroom Tax would mean you going without £14 worth of food or fuel. We suggest you make a token payment of whatever you can afford each week, perhaps between £1 and £5. Apply for money from your local council’s Citizen Support Scheme/Hardship Fund. Make sure you are receiving every benefit you are entitled to.
