Paying for the service
If you are eligible for a period of enablement and the service has capacity to provide this, then you will not be charged for this service for up to 6 weeks.
If enablement ends before 6 weeks and you need ongoing care and support, then you may be charged from the date that this starts. If enablement goes on for longer than 6 weeks, then you may be charged at week 7.
If the Enablement Service does not have capacity to deliver this for you, and care and support from an agency is arranged for you, then you may be charged from the date that this starts.
Someone from our Financial Assessment Team will contact you to carry out a financial assessment. From this we will tell you how much money we are paying for your social care and support.
We will then arrange for you to pay your contribution to us, which we will be backdated to the start of funding for your care and support.
