Council tax exemption for care leavers

Harrow Care Leavers are exempt from Council Tax until their 25th Birthday. They must claim any other eligible discounts and exemptions before applying.

It is different to other exemptions. Children Services make a fund transfer to cover the Council Tax. The bill will not show the exemption.

For the full details and eligibility criteria, see Harrow Care Leaver Policy.
