Tribunals Service

Appeals made in regard to Housing and or Council Tax Benefit are administered and heard by the HM Courts & Tribunals Service, an executive agency of the Ministry of Justice.

They arrange independent hearings for appeals on decisions made by the Department for Work and Pensions (including Jobcentre Plus, Child Support Agency and Disability and Carers Service), as well as other government departments (HM Revenue and Customs) and local authorities.

Appeals are determined by independent tribunal panels whose decisions cannot normally be changed other than by way of a further appeal to the Upper Tribunal.

Appeals are heard at tribunal venues, ours are normally heard at Lincoln but they can arrange for appeals to be heard at a venue convenient to you.

The appeals are processed at eight operational sites throughout Great Britain.
