Council Tax Support is financial support to help you pay your council tax if you are on a low income or unemployed. The scheme is reviewed on annual basis.
To qualify for Council Tax Support you must be the person responsible for paying the Council Tax or the partner of that person. If you are in a couple only one of you needs to make a claim.

You won’t be eligible for Council Tax Support if:
