Care leavers deserve a fairer start

We are calling on councils to make young people leaving care exempt from paying council tax until they turn 25. 

This important change will give young people valuable time to learn how to manage their finances without the worry of falling into council tax debt.

Write to your councillors now and ask them to give care leavers a fairer start at adulthood.
