Application for a discount when someone is severely mentally impaired
Overall form progress: 100% Complete
  1. If more than one person is severely mentally impaired, please fill in one form for each person. For information on eligibility, please see council tax discounts and exemptions.

    Please note, you will need your council tax reference number to complete the request and we may contact you to provide proof to support your application. If you need to provide proof, this can be done at any of our Access Points or by sending the original documents to our office.

    All fields marked * are mandatory. All other fields are optional. Information you provide will be used to verify your application for discount. Providing optional information such as telephone number, will assist the council in verifying the details you provide and speed up the discount application process.

    On completion of your request you will be sent a receipt to the email address you provide.

  5. Qualifying benefits In order to support the application, please show which of these benefits (if any) the severely mentally impaired person receives by entering the date they started. Please note we will need to see proof of benefit entitlement before a discount can be awarded.
