The following policy sets out South Gloucestershire Council’s position on charging for adult social care services.

Charging policy for Adult Social Care 2021-2024

The Care Act 2014 provides a single legal framework for charging for care and support. Where a local authority arranges care and support to meet a person’s eligible need, the local authority has a power to charge that individual, except in cases where the local authority is required to arrange care and support free of charge due to inability to pay or if an individual requires support in place for specific individual circumstances.

This policy has been developed following a consultation with South Gloucestershire residents currently receiving care and support who may be affected by any changes.
