Voluntary tax proposed to help end homelessness in Croydon
 

If elected to run Croydon Council in May 2018, Croydon Conservatives will invite residents with the means to make an additional Council Tax payment to help some of the most vulnerable in our borough.

Croydon Conservatives will include in their manifesto a pledge to introduce a Band H council tax voluntary contribution, so that those who have the means will be able to donate to a ring-fenced pot of money which will go towards helping reduce rough sleeping, social isolation amongst older residents and additional activities for young people.

Cllr Tim Pollard, Leader of Croydon’s Conservative Councillors, commented: "One person homeless in Croydon is one person too many. It will be a key priority of a Council I lead to address this head on. That’s why if elected in May we will ask those that have done well to volunteer to contribute a little extra, ring-fencing the money raised to target some of the root causes of homelessness.”

This is one pledge in a package of measures that will help our most vulnerable residents. The full details will be included in the Croydon Conservatives Manifesto, unveiled in March 2018.
