Help For Low Income Households from Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council

A scheme providing additional council tax help during the Covid-19 pandemic is benefitting working age households who are living on a low income.

The initiative, supported by £531,000 of government funding, provides a reduction of up to £150 off the council tax bill for low income households who currently receive working age Council Tax Support.

The reduction is being applied automatically to the council tax bills of people who are eligible and revised bills showing how much is left to pay are starting to be sent out this week. The reduction will also be applied to the bills of any new working age council tax support recipients. More »

Many people have been affected financially by issues such as redundancy, furlough or reduced hours in the last few months. These sorts of changes make it difficult to pay the normal monthly bills. Although the government has put in place measures to help, for instance payment holidays, it can build up debt arrears.

Council Leader Cllr Stuart Bray said: "Unfortunately, a growing number of people are experiencing financial difficulties as a direct result of the Covid-19 pandemic, which is why we have committed to providing as much support as possible to the people that most need our help. The government funding has enabled us to provide Council Tax reductions for those who already claim Council Tax Support and we would urge anyone on a low income to check to see if they are eligible to claim additional support".

Anyone who would like advice about managing with less money, or help in dealing with arrears or other debts, is urged to please get some advice now - do not wait.
