Paying for your social care services

Social care services, unlike health care, are not free for everyone. You may have to contribute something towards the cost of your care, or you may have to pay the full cost of your care.

See the sections below for more information, including links to our factsheets on charging, financial assessments, disability related expenses and information for full cost customers/self-funders.
