This webpage is about paying for your care and support and about charging and financial assessment in Adult Social Care.
You can use the council’s confidential and free to use online calculators if you would like to estimate how much you might have to pay when the council is involved in providing or arranging your care.
We recommend that you take independent financial advice about your options for paying for care and support before entering into care arrangements.
