Fairer Contributions Policy (Non Residential Care / Personal Budgets)
Gloucestershire County Council's Adult Social Care relies on people making a financial contribution towards the cost of services they need if they are able to do so.
The Fairer Contributions Policy outlines the framework used for assessing whether or not an individual must make a financial contribution. Policy was updated in June 2015 to reflect changes introduced by:
- The Care Act 2014,
- The Care and Support (Charging and Assessment of Resources) Regulations 2014 and
- The Care Act 2014: statutory guidance for implementation issued under the Care Act by the Department of Health in October 2014.
This policy will be revised by 1 April 2016 when part 2 of the Care Act comes into force.
