Council Tax Discounts

Care Leavers

From 1st April 2019 care leavers who meet the following definition can be disregarded for council tax purposes:

A care leaver means a person who is aged 24 or under and a category 3 young person as defined by section 104 of the Social Services and Well-Being (Wales) Act 2014 (1).

A disregard discount may apply depending on the number of other occupiers in the property over the age of 18 and their status. For example if a property is only occupied by a care leaver and a non-care leaver a 25% council tax discount would apply.

To apply for the discount please e-mail or telephone Revenue Services on 01437 764551.
