Care leavers | Accommodation
Where you live when you leave care is a big decision to make. It is important to know what options you have and what these options involve.
Council Tax exemption
If you are a North East Lincolnshire care leaver and are not in employment you are fully exempt from Council Tax until you become 25 years old. You will need to confirm with the council tax office that you are a care leaver and consent for them to confirm this with our team.
You will also need to remember that at 25 you will have to start to pay Council Tax and this could be part way through a financial year.
If you live with another young person who is not a care leaver, they will still have to pay council tax, although there will be a 50 per cent exemption. If you have any worries please contact your personal advisor or the Council Tax team.
