Under 25 and leaving care
Corporate parenting is a statutory function of Sunderland City Council. To help young care leavers with the challenges of living independently we will reduce their Council Tax.
As a corporate parent we will support each young person leaving care who moves in to independent accommodation with a 100% reduction on their Council Tax bill.
The 100% reduction will apply from 1 April 2017 to care leavers up to the age of 25. We may contact you to confirm eligibility for this reduction.
You can find out further information about leaving care through Together for Children.
