What do services cost?

Care services provided by the Council may require you to make a financial contribution to the cost of these care services. The contribution will be decided by a financial assessment.

The most we can charge for a package of community based care is £80 a week.

Some Services are free, other services ask for a contribution to the cost. Some services have a fixed cost which everyone has to pay.
