Care Leaver discounts (with effect from 1 April 2019)
With effect from 1 April 2019 Stroud District Council is introducing a care leavers discount scheme.
To qualify for this discount a person must be
- Aged between 18 & 21 (the discount will cease on the care leaver’s 22nd birthday)
- Formerly in the care of Gloucestershire County Council & a Former Relevant Child as defined by The Children (Leaving Care) Act 200.
- Must be resident and liable (either solely or joint and severally with others) for Council Tax on a property within the Stroud District.
If a property is occupied solely by Care Leaver(s) a 100% discount will be awarded, and if a Care Leaver occupies and is jointly liable with others a 50% discount will be awarded.
To confirm entitlement to the discount your Care Leaver status will be verified with Gloucestershire County Councils 11 – 25 Permanency Service.
