From April 2021, Thurrock Council foster carers who live in Thurrock will be exempt from paying council tax.
This exemption applies for foster carers who:
- live in Thurrock
- are registered as foster carers with Thurrock Council
- are available to foster
- had a foster care placement from Thurrock Council for a total of 6 months out of the previous 12 months
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.
