Review of Adult Social Care charging for Respite outcome
The Council has decided to change its approach to charging for respite. Instead of charging one of a number of flat fee bands, from 27th March 2023 the Council will charge individuals using the same rules that apply to charging for care at home. This means that each individual will contribute what a financial assessment based on those rules indicates they can afford to pay.
