Donate your Council Tax rebate
What is the Council Tax rebate?
With energy prices soaring, on 3 February the Government announced measures to ease their impact. One of these is the Council Tax rebate. The Council Tax rebate will apply from April 2022 to homes in Council Tax bands A to D. It will be made directly by local authorities and will not need to be repaid. Four in five UK households will be eligible.

Many people struggle to heat their homes. The price cap rise, which takes effect in April 2022, means that 6.5 million UK households could be in fuel poverty – a rise of more than 50% from September 2021.
Our CEO Adam Scorer said: “We needed deep, targeted support for the most vulnerable. We have shallow, broad measures for all.”
Of course, many people are struggling with the cost of living, including energy prices, and the Council Tax rebate will be much needed. If you are eligible but feel as though you can keep comfortably warm and you don’t need the rebate, please consider donating to help those struggling.
