Council Tax - discounts for people

Disabled people

You may be entitled to a reduction if you or someone living in your household has a physical or mental impairment which has a serious, long term effect on daily living. The Equality Act 2010 defines disability.

To qualify your home should have either of the following:

  • A room, other than a kitchen or bathroom, which is mainly used by the disabled person and is needed for meeting their needs
  • An additional bathroom or kitchen which is needed to meet the needs of the disabled person
  • Sufficient floor space to permit the use of a wheelchair. The disabled person must need to use the wheelchair indoors
