Care costs - Your contribution towards your care costs

Everyone who receives care services is required to pay for those services and each service has its own charging policy.

Some services are charged a flat rate where everyone pays the same amount however, some charges (or potential reductions to flat rates) are calculated based on the individual financial circumstance of the customer. For these charges you will need a financial assessment to determine how much you will need to contribute.

A Financial Assessment is part of the overall assessment process for adult social care and you will need to contact Adult Care Connect and Direct. This also applies to reassessments of your circumstances.
