Dear bowlingbun
Unfortunately the rules for Council Tax Exemption are the same as for Council Tax Discount.
You/they need GP certification and a qualifying DWP Benefit.
The only way this will change for all council throughout the UK is if the laws are changed.
177,000 #Dementia households are entitled to either a 25% or a 100% reduction in their council tax yet only 25,000 receive the full discount. Please sign this petition for a change in the laws. https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/614616
67% of UK councils hold back on giving a reduction in council tax of as much as £10,400 to families with #dementia. Please sign this petition to change the laws https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/614616
There are 152,381 UK families coping with #dementia denied council tax discount of between £200 and £10,400 because they live in one of the 255 councils who do not give them their full discount. Please stop this discrimination by signing this petition. https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/614616
There are 1,008,375 UK people with #Dementia and each has friends, carers and relatives. That's some 5 million people touched by dementia. Just 100,000 signatures can halt the discrimination of Council Tax Dementia laws. Please sign and resend, Thank you. https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/614616
