Council Tax discounts

You might be entitled to a reduction in your Council Tax, or be exempt from paying Council Tax.

Care leavers discount

If you are a care leaver aged under 25 who is paying Council Tax or living with someone who pays council tax, we may be able to reduce the amount of Council Tax you pay.

To qualify for a reduction you must be:

  • a care leaver under 25 years old
  • live in Surrey Heath 
  • named on the Council Tax bill
  • the reduction will stop on your 25th birthday or if the policy is revised

If you are the only person paying the Council Tax bill, you will not have to pay any Council Tax.

If you live with someone else, the Council Tax bill will be reduced to 50%.


Please complete the care leavers discount application form.

If you have any questions, contact us or speak to your allocated keyworker at Surrey County Counci or  email (link sends email).
