Please note, these are initial management information only, the information comes from a different source to the official statistics we publish and has not been quality assured to the same standard.

Postcodes are linked to client profiles and the management information automatically updates when a client changes address. As a result, postcodes reflect the latest address of clients and may not be the same as the address at the time of application, decision or payment. As a result you may find some of the values have changed from your previous request in August 2020.
