Resident Carer Discount

What is it?

A discount in Council Tax can apply where a person provides care or support to a person who is resident in the same property.

The person being cared for must:

  • Require care for at least 35 hours a week
  • Be in receipt of certain disablement related state benefits (listed on the application)
  • Not be the carer's spouse/partner or a child under 18

How does it work?

You need to apply for the discount as it will not be automatically granted.

When you apply, we need to gather information from the person who provides the care, as well as information about the person who receives the care.

We also need confirmation that a relevant state benefit is in payment.

This discount will apply for as long as the relevant criteria are met.

We will periodically review all discounts to check that the award is still correct.

How do I apply?

To apply for this discount please complete our pdf icon application form [119kb] and return it to the postal address on the form together with the evidence requested.

If you require further information on this exemption, please complete our enquiry form.
