Council Tax Support is not always enough for you to be able to pay your Council Tax bill. If you have unusual or extreme circumstances which are causing hardship we may be able to help.
There is a scheme that can help in difficult situations. It's called the Council Tax Discretionary Fund. As the name suggests, we make payments at our discretion.
There are no rules that give anyone a right to a payment, but we may be able to pay you from the Discretionary Fund if we believe that you need extra financial support.
To receive an award you must:
Be getting Council Tax Support
Satisfy the Discretionary Housing Payment Officer that you require extra help with housing costs by providing your income and expenses.
There is still some funding available for the current year. You can get further information from the Discretionary Housing Payment Page of our website.
