Exceptional Hardship Fund

The Exceptional Hardship Fund payment is an extra payment to help towards reducing your Council Tax liability. They may be paid to people whether or not they are receiving Council Tax Reduction and can be paid towards a council tax charge on an occupied or unoccupied property. They are generally intended for people experiencing a short-term exceptional financial problem.

The Council has a limited amount of money each year for the scheme. We then have to decide who this money is paid to. These are not benefit payments and you should not rely on a payment being made.
