If we assess that you need a service then most people will have to make some contribution towards the cost of the social care service they use. However this will be based on your ability to pay, not the cost of the service. You will not pay more than you can afford and you will not pay more than the cost of the service. We will carry out a financial assessment based on your own circumstances to work out how much you need to pay.
There are a range of social care services for which a charge is applied, for more information see our ‘Charges for Non residential Services’ Booklet.
