Care and Support Charging and Financial Assessment Framework

The framework is designed to be used by you, the service user, or your representative. The Council has, were possible, used plain English. Care and support is not a free service and many services are subject to charge. Local authorities are required to carry out a financial assessment to calculate what an individual can afford to pay towards their care, although the Council does retain a general discretion in respect of charging.
