Financial support is now available for people who were not eligible for the Government’s recent £150 council tax rebate. Criteria for the financial support is available on our website and we have worked with local groups including the Citizens Advice Bureau to get this limited funding to the people who will need it most.
It includes people on low income, people living in supported accommodation, people living in HMOs and people receiving certain benefits amongst other criteria.
If a member of your family or someone you know receives a reduction in their Council Tax because they have been diagnosed as severely mentally impaired, but does not qualify for the Government’s £150 Energy Rebate, they might qualify for a payment towards their energy bills through the Council’s Discretionary Fund. If you could let carers know we would appreciate it so we can get this support out to those who need it.
Applications are open until 5 July.
