We’ve received funding from government to help those most in need with Council Tax payments. This is for people who already receive Council Tax support. In addition to the support you get already, you’ll receive a further discount of up to £150 from your bill.
Update: We’ve now paid out the additional £150 hardship payments. Over 2,500 people have received this additional support from the fund at a total of £221,000.
If your circumstances have recently changed – for example, if you’ve recently lost your job – you may be eligible for Council Tax support. You must have first registered to receive Universal Credit. Any new applicants will also receive the hardship support throughout the rest of the year.
