Council Tax Reduction scheme
The council also offers Council Tax Reduction (CTR) under the local Council Tax Support Scheme.
This is means-tested so the amount of help you're entitled to will depend on your savings and weekly income, as well as your household circumstances.
Council Tax Reduction isnt given automatically; you'll still need to make a claim even if you're getting benefits like Income Support or Jobseeker's Allowance or Universal Credit.
You can make a claim whether your landlord is a housing association, or a private individual, or a company. Please note, you can't normally claim if you live with a member of your family and pay them rent.
