1. Apply for an Exceptional Hardship Fund payment
Get help paying your Council Tax, through the Exceptional Hardship Fund
Are you struggling to pay your council tax, even though you have received a reduction of some sort?
If you are experiencing financial hardship then you can apply for this short-term emergency fund to meet the shortfall.
EHF will be awarded at our discretion after careful consideration of your individual circumstances. If your application is successful, it will usually be made as a one off payment direct to your council tax account, reducing the amount of council tax you have left to pay.

If your housing benefits or Universal Credits do not cover you full rent you can apply for a Discretionary Housing Payment on the same form.
