Charging Policy for Non-Residential Services
This policy aims to make charging fair
and consistent for all service users in accordance with guidelines,
set out by Central Government. The Council must comply with the
Fairer Charging Guidance and ensure that there is equitable
charging. The removal of subsidies and the adoption of full cost
charging ensure consistent charging. Full cost charging is applied
to those who can afford it and service users will only ever be
charged their maximum assessed charge for means tested services.
The policy applies equitable charging for service users whether
using a personal budget as a direct payment or receiving
Council-commissioned services. This policy is in line with the
Department of Health Guidance and is underpinned throughout by the
Charging for Residential Accommodation Guide.
If you require more information or have any
queries, please do not hesitate to contact the Access Centre.
