Care leavers and Foster Care discount/exemption

Redbridge has introduced two new reductions to Council Tax.

Up until 31 March 2025, our registered foster carers are entitled to receive a 60% discount which could increase to 80% if certain occupancy conditions are met. Please discuss this with your supervising social worker or contact the Redbridge Fostering Team on 020 8708 6068.

Redbridge Care Leavers are exempt from Council Tax until they turn 25 years of age and if you need any help with your council tax account please email us at

If you require any other support or advice you can contact the leaving care team duty number onĀ 0208 708 6807 and ask to speak to a personal adviser.
