Consultation on charging for community-based adult social care services opens

adult charging consultation snip
We are consulting on proposals that will change the way we calculate how much our residents pay towards the cost of community-based adult social care services.

Community-based services include care provided to a person in their home, care provided in day centres and care purchased with a direct payment from the council.

Like all other councils, we are facing significant financial pressures. The changes we are consulting on will help us make savings to ensure we are able to continue providing a sustainable social care offer. The changes will also bring us in line with how other councils charge for community-based adult social care services, while maintaining our commitment that only people who can afford to pay towards the cost of their care, do so.

We want to hear what you think about our proposals.

The consultation runs from Tuesday 9 June 2020 to Monday 7 September 2020. To have your say, please visit Let’s talk Tower Hamlets, the council’s online consultation and engagement platform.
