Some services we provide are not free for everyone – the amount you have to pay depends on how much you can afford.

For further information about paying for Adult Social Care Services please read the 'Paying for Adult Social Care' guide which can be found in the Documents section on this page. 

The guide includes information about:

  • ​cost of care provided in your own home (non-residential care)
  • cost of residential care
  • how you pay for care and support services
  • personal budgets
  • deferred payment agreements
  • where to go for independent financial advice
