Can I get money off my council tax?

There are four different ways in which you could reduce your Council Tax bill. Although the four ways are not specifically for blind and partially sighted people, one or all of them may apply to you.

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

Find out more here about these four schemes and if they apply to you.
