Council Tax Discount Policy for Care Leavers

Discretionary Council Tax Discount Policy – Care Leavers

We want to improve the lives and life chances of our care leavers, and recognise they're among the most vulnerable groups in our society. To provide support in these circumstances, we've introduced a 100 per cent Council Tax discount to help relieve some of that initial financial pressure and help care leavers develop independent lives.

When care leavers move into independent accommodation, without the family support and wider network most other young people can rely on, they're often faced with a new set of responsibilities, including managing their own budget fully for the first time.
