Report fraud

Gloucester City Council is committed to preventing and detecting benefit and Council Tax fraud.

What is fraud?

Housing Benefit or Council Tax fraud is when someone knowingly claims benefits, Council Tax support, discounts or exemptions that they’re not entitled to. For example by:

  • not reporting a change
  • providing false information

How to report fraud

Give as much information as you can about the person you’re reporting. This could include:

  • their name
  • their address
  • the type of fraud you think they’re committing

You can make a report anonymously - you do not have to give your name or contact details unless you want to.
