Sefton Council recognises that the voluntary and community sector makes a major contribution to the economy, health and well-being of the people who live and work in Sefton. However, Discretionary Rate Relief granted by Sefton Council is paid for by the Council Tax payers and the Council has a duty to ensure that public funds are spent wisely and there is due transparency and accountability.
