Discretionary hardship payments
Discretionary Hardship Payments may be able to help you if there is a shortfall between the amount you receive in Council Tax reduction and how much you need to pay.
Payments can be considered from a small cash limited fund to help you if you are deemed to be vulnerable. Awards can only normally be made for a short period and will be restricted to the current financial year.
Backdating requests under the scheme can only be considered in limited circumstances.
