Council tax Money off council tax for people leaving care

If you have been in care – for instance you lived in a care home or were fostered – you may be able to get money off your council tax bill.

To apply you will need to know:

  • how long you were in care; and
  • when you were in care; and
  • where you were in care; and
  • the details of anyone living with you, including the date they moved in.

If you were in care with a council other than us you will need to provide contact details for the council so we can check.
