Paying for your Social Care

From October 2023, changes to Adult Social Care will affect financial assessment and how much you have to pay for your care.  There is more information about what will change and how this will affect you on the Department of Health and Social Care website.

We will update this webpage closer to the time.

Reviews and changes to your circumstances

Please contact the FAB Team straight away if your financial circumstances change as this may affect how much you have to pay. You may have to pay backdated charges if you delay. We will reassess your financial circumstances to make sure you are paying the right amount.

We will also review your charges if you need a different type of care.

The Department for Work and Pensions increases state benefits in April in most years. We will reassess your contribution when this happens. We will write to you if your contribution changes. You can ask us to reassess your financial circumstances if you think your assessment is no  longer  accurate.
