Council Tax hardship fund

As part of its response to COVID-19, the government has announced a £500 million hardship fund to provide Council Tax relief for vulnerable households. The guidance was issued to us on 24 March 2020 and we are currently looking at how we can make reductions to Council Tax bills and which accounts this affects. Please bear with us, we will provide more information as soon as we are able to.
