Foster carer payments and support

Council tax exemption for foster carers

From April 2021, Thurrock Council foster carers who live in Thurrock will be exempt from paying council tax.

This exemption applies only for foster carers who live in Thurrock and are registered with Thurrock Council.

We value the fantastic work of our foster carers in making a difference to children's lives.

We are giving this additional support in recognition and appreciation of the stability and care provided to children and young people in Thurrock.

Full terms and conditions will be published nearer to the launch of this scheme in 2021.
