Council Tax hardship fund
As part of the response to coronavirus (COVID-19), the government announced a national £500 million hardship fund to provide Council Tax relief for vulnerable households. We have now made the relevant adjustments to the Council Tax bills for all working age people that get Council Tax Support. If this applies to you, we will send you a new Council Tax bill showing the amount of the adjustment, and any amount left to pay
