Council tax discount application: hospital, care home or hostel


A discount may be applicable if one of the individuals in the property are deemed to have become resident in a  hospital or are permanently in a care home.

Short stays in hospital will not qualify

Living or receiving care in care homes (nursing, mental nursing, hostel) also do not count unless it’s their main residence.

Adults aren’t counted if they’re staying in short stay hostels or night shelters because they have no fixed address. These may include hostels run by the Salvation or Church Army.
