Is there a charge for non-residential care?

Yes. We ask for a contribution, if you can afford to make one, towards the cost of the services you receive. This is to help us provide and develop services to a high standard. Everyone has the right to an assessment of their care needs. If you are assessed by a care manager or social worker as needing care you may be entitled to receive financial help. The amount you will be expected to contribute is related to how much you are assessed as being able to pay.

If you receive a direct payment any contribution you are assessed to make will be deducted from the amount we pay you.
