Help to pay your bill

If you are in receipt of Income Support, Job Seekers Allowance, Pension Credit or on a low income, you may qualify for a reduction in your council tax. This is called council tax reduction. You may also get help if you are of pension age and share your home with another adult, or adults, who are on a low income. This is called second adult rebate. This is not available to those who are not of pension age. If you think you may qualify contact us straight away. Any delay could lose you benefit.
