If you have been in care – for instance if you lived in a care home or were fostered – you may be able to get money off your council tax bill until you reach the age of 25.
To apply you must have been in care:
- on your 16th birthday; and
- for at least 13 weeks from the age of 14.
You will need to know:
- how long you were in care
- when you were in care
- where you were in care
- 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.
