A scheme for disabled people to help them with council tax costs, by charging council tax on a lower valuation band.
To claim a reduction you must show that a disabled person lives in the property, and also that the property has at least one of the following:
- An extra kitchen or bathroom to meet the needs of a disabled person
- Any other room (except a toilet) which is mainly used by a disabled person to meet their needs
- Enough indoor space for a disabled person to use their wheelchair
Applications to this scheme are through your local council and you can get advice from Citizens Advice.
