I am a single mum and my partner stays twice a week, Is this benefit fraud?


I am a single mum and working but also claim housing benefit that I am entitled to.
I am worried as my partner stays round twice a week to help with looking after my son a to give me a break. He does not give me any money and lives with his mum.
Am I committing benefit fraud?
