It is often possible to challenge a benefit decision if you think the decision is wrong.
To challenge decisions about benefits and Social Fund payments, contact the Department for Work and Pensions (see 'useful website' on the right-hand side column for contact details).
To challenge decisions about Housing and Council Tax Benefits, contact your local authority.
