Council Tax support scheme proposals

Local welfare support payments

Q6a Disregard Local Welfare Support Payments

The Government has introduced a number of payments under the umbrella term local welfare support. These are for things like the ‘Thank you’ payment for hosts of Ukrainian guests. Currently, we would have to take this money into account when deciding how much Council Tax Support someone will get. 


We cannot make in-year changes to our CTS schemes so it is not possible to disregard these payments.

Potential cost

This would result in a similar cost to as the current scheme.
