There has been a surge in the number of people in Birmingham who need help paying their rent since the government's recent welfare reforms.
There were protests against cuts to benefits across the Midlands last month. In the first two weeks of April Birmingham City Council received almost 2,000 applications for Discretionary Housing Payments - 50% more than for the whole of the first quarter of the previous financial year.
Councillor John Cotton says the reforms are making some people's lives worse.
