How much will you have to pay

The city council will need to determine whether you qualify for financial support towards the cost of your care and support.

To do this the city council will carry out a basic Financial Assessment with you. They will ask whether you have access to funds above £23,250 or not.

If you do not have access to funds above £23,250 you will usually qualify for financial support.

If you do qualify for financial support, the city council will then work out how much your care and support will cost. This is known as your personal budget.

Once the personal budget has been determined and care and support or direct payment is in place, a full / personalised financial assessment will be carried out. This assessment will calculate the amount you must contribute towards the cost of your care and support. This will be confirmed in writing.
