Care leaver discount

From 1 April 2019, if you're under 25 and have previously been in local authority care, we may be able to reduce your Council Tax.

Who will qualify?

To be awarded a reduction you must:

• previously been in the care of a local authority since the age of 14, for at least 13 weeks and have been in care on your 16th birthday

• be resident in the Babergh or Mid Suffolk District Council area

• be under 25 years old

We may be able to reduce your Council Tax bill depending on how many adults live in the property (and if they qualify for reductions).

If you would like to discuss the Council Tax reduction/discount criteria, please email Customer Services

Alternatively, you can phone 01473 433911 (Mon-Fri, 08:45 – 16:45)
