Charging for non-residential services
The council's charging policy for Non-Residential Services has been produced in accordance with the Care Act 2014. The Care and Support (Charging and Assessment of Resources) Regulations 2014 set out local authority's responsibilities and came into force on 1 April 2015.
The council's policy sets out how we assess the amount you will be required to pay towards your care package based on a financial assessment of your income and savings.
