Customer Request Details

30 March 2022

Please tell us the general subject of your request (e.g. Burials paid for by the council)
Support for Ukraine refugees if offering them a home

Please provide full details of your request (e.g. Please provide details of the number of burials paid for by the council each year between 2001 and 2012)
We are looking to offer one of our apartments to a mother and son in Ukraine.

They have asked for information on what support would be available to them in regards to benefits and schooling for her son who is 9. I cant find any information on this. Could you please advise.

I am assuming also that council tax would be waived in this instance as we would be receiving no revenue for it obviously but equally it is not empty.
