Energy Bill Support scheme – Alternative Funding
We have been advised that the Government intend to launch a new Energy Bill Support scheme in January 2023.
Council Tax Support is to help pay Council Tax. You do not have to be on another benefit to qualify for Council Tax Support, you can just be on a low income.
The council does not just collect Council Tax - we also administer a local scheme of financial support to help pay Council Tax for those on a low income.
If you have over £16,000 in savings and you are not in receipt of Pension Credit Guarantee you will not qualify for Council Tax Support.
You can make a Council Tax Support claim online now.
This is financial help towards paying the charge however there are circumstances where the actual charge can be looked at, further details are available in Council Tax Discounts and exemptions.
