Your council tax is needed to help pay for lots of services we provide for Portsmouth people, including essential and critical services such as care for vulnerable adults and children and support for homeless people. It also helps to fund police and fire services.
We are also paying more for some critical services that are needed to help the vulnerable as a result of the pandemic.
We appreciate that many residents are struggling financially at this time and we understand the anxiety this can cause.
At this time we have to target support at those who need it the most. If you are in difficulties, we will do our best to help. Please let us know as soon as you can.
