If you live alone, you'll get the single person discount of 25% on your council tax bill.
Some people in certain situations are also 'disregarded' for council tax. This means, if you live alone with one or more 'disregarded' people you'll be treated as single for the purposes of council tax and get a 25% discount on your bill.
People who have a severe mental impairment are among the list of people who are 'disregarded' for council tax.
When counting the number of people, your council will disregard anyone who has a severe mental impairment, and anyone who is a live-in carer (as long as the live-in carer is not the partner of the person being cared for or a parent of a child under 18).
You won't get the discount if there is more than one adult living with you who doesn't qualify.
This discount isn’t affected by your income or savings.
You can apply for this even if you don’t have a disability or care needs.
