Care leavers and council tax exemption

Year: 2018
Topic: Legislation, Throughcare and aftercare
Author: Kenny McGhee

The issue of financial hardship and the impact of poverty on care leavers is well documented. Care leavers are a particularly vulnerable group when it comes to financial hardship. Leaving home at a much earlier age that the general population, care leavers are much more likely to encounter the effects of debt and poverty, lacking the safety net of the 'bank of mum & dad' which others may take for granted.

This briefing updates on changes in legislation which now exempts young care leavers in Scotland from council tax.
