Fees and Charges

The cost of the service varies depending on the person’s needs and the funding authority. We compare favourably with the cost of residential care or supported living.

Fees and Charges

Our services can be purchased via self-funding, by direct payments through Adult Social Care or the local authority and the NHS.

Long term services

Long term services are charged on a banded system, which reflects the input, skill and expertise our carers. In all cases people using our services will be responsible for meeting the rent and household costs element of the charge.

If the local authority is funding the service on behalf of the person, there may need to be Fairer Charging assessment to see if they have to pay towards their care.

We have a Money Management support service that helps:

  • People to claim all welfare benefits they are entitled to.
  • Calculates any contribution toward the cost of their service.
  • Manages these payments.

This service is available to all long term placements.

Short break and day services

These services are calculated by the length of stay and the needs of the person requiring the support.  Day support is charged at an hourly rate, overnight stays are for a 24 hour period.  The local authority may help with the cost.
