Can I get money off my council tax?

For those living in England, Scotland and Wales there are four different ways in which you could reduce your Council Tax bill. Not all four ways are specifically for blind and partially sighted people, but one or all of them may apply to you:

  1. Your local Council Tax support scheme (helps people on low incomes)
  2. The disability reduction scheme
  3. Single person's discount
  4. Second adult rebate

Further information about these schemes and how they may apply to you can be found on our Reduce your council tax bill web pages and factsheet:
