Carers, Care Workers and Care Leavers

Carers

If you live with and look after someone who is not your partner or your child (under 18 years) for a minimum of 35 hours each week, then you may qualify for a reduction in your Council Tax.

The person being cared for must be in receipt of one of the following benefits:

Care Workers

In addition, care workers who are providing care on behalf of a council, Crown or a charity, engaged or employed at least 24 hours each week, may also qualify to be disregarded provided they receive no more than £36 remuneration each week. In order to qualify they should reside in premises provided by the relevant body for the better performance of their work.

Care Leavers

Support may be available to those that leave care and become liable for council tax.

This is administered by Warwickshire County Council.
