Care leaver discount

You are here

From 1 April 2019, if you are under 25 and have previously been in Suffolk County Council care, we may be able to reduce your Council Tax.

Who will qualify?

To be awarded a reduction you must:

  • previously been in the care of the Suffolk County Council since the age of 14, for at least 13 weeks and have been in care on your 16th birthday
  • be resident in the Ipswich Borough Council area
  • be under 25 years old

We may be able to reduce your Council Tax bill depending on how many other adults live in the property (and if they qualify for any other reductions).

If you would like to discuss the Council Tax reduction/discount criteria, please email Customer Services. Alternatively, you can phone 01473 433911 (Mon-Fri, 08:45 – 16:45)
