Fair charges for the cost of adult social care

A consultation on proposals for changes to the way we charge for adult social care.

We are consulting on proposals about how people who use adult social care services contribute to their costs. The consultation covers two main areas:

  • the cost of transport to places where people may receive a service; and
  • how the total cost of care is calculated.

We are seeking your views on our proposals before we take any final decisions in 2019. Your views will be fed back to county councillors, so they are made aware of what you think before they take any decisions. Decisions have not yet been made.

We would like to hear your views about our proposals and any other ideas and suggestions you might have. You can tell us what you think by completing the survey below. There is an ‘easy read’ version available and other formats can be provided upon request.
