Cap On Care Contribution Is Raised

Cap raised on care contribution Cap raised on care contribution


CABINET members have agreed that the cap on weekly contributions by individuals to the cost of their non-residential care will increase.

The sum's to raise from £90 per week to £150 per week.

This increase will be phased in via incremental stages of £15 extra per week over the next four years.

A number suggested that if contributions had to increase, then this should be done in stages and that a higher maximum would be a more acceptable alternative to complete removal.

The increase over the next four financial years will still achieve the projected additional revenue for the council but would mitigate against hardship being experienced by some people in receipt of large care packages.

A maximum weekly contribution of £150 per week will still compare favourably with the majority of other local authorities.
