Oldham Council have introduced a local discount which aims to support care leavers in their transition to independent living. Care leavers up to the age 25 who are living in the borough and are responsible for council tax will receive a 100% discount.
A property that is occupied wholly by persons under the age of 18 is exempt.
There are also discounts available for:
- 18 year olds for whom child benefit is being paid, and
- Youth training trainees, under 25 who have an individual training plan funded by the skills funding agency or young people’s learning agency.
If you think you may be entitled to a discount contact our council tax team.
