View the full agenda for the Cabinet meeting. In section 549 of the agenda you will find the report, as well as the results from the consultation, and an extensive Equality Impact Assessment.”
This consultation is relevant to:
- people who use non-residential social care services,
- any member of the public who is concerned about how much they might have to pay for social care services in the future.
Leicestershire County Council is thinking about making changes to the way it charges for adult social care services.
We think these changes will help us to create a better way of charging for the future which will help us to meet our financial targets in a sensible way without reducing services. The changes aim to make sure people are charged in a fairer way and in the same way, no matter what service they receive but based on their personal circumstances.
We want to ask you what you think about these changes.
We have ideas for changes in 4 areas:
- Idea 1: Changing how much we subsidise or top up payment for all non-residential services.
- Idea 2: Changing how we charge for Housing Related Support.
- Idea 3: Changing how we charge for Extra Care Housing.
- Idea 4: Changing how we charge for Assistive Technology.
