Consultation on Equitable Charging

Consultation on Equitable Charging in Community Care: Live from Monday 24th August to Sunday 18th October 2020

We would welcome your comments on the proposed change to Care Charges for Community Services by removing the maximum weekly charge of £400.00. The Care Act 2014 gives local authorities powers to charge for care and support to recover the real costs they incur when contracting for care and support. Calderdale Council currently caps the cost  of community services for people irrespective of their ability to pay. This is not the same for someone who may need residential services for people with similar financial circumstances where they would  be  charged  the  real  cost . The proposed change is to align charges with Residential care so the same financial thresholds apply to everyone. The Consultation is for service users who are directly impacted and those that may be affected should they need Community Services in the future.
