Care Act Consultation: Fees, Charging and Deferred Payments Scheme
3rd Mar, 2015
The Care Act is the biggest change to English adult social care law in over 60 years. It will replace a number of different pieces of legislation with a single legal framework that will have the wellbeing of individuals and carers at the heart of care and support services.
Much of the Act is prescriptive but there are a number of aspects to it that provide the Local Authority with some discretion. These include aspects relating to Fees, Charging and the Universal Deferred Payments Scheme.
The Council is keen to get views via a consultation process on the various proposals which have been developed in the context of the Care Act Statutory Guidance, the need for the Council to use its resources effectively and the wish to ensure that people are treated equitably.
