Is subject to call in?: Yes


Purpose: To amend the fees and charges for day centres



RESOLVED: That the decision previously made at 29 January 2015 Executive of a new social care charging framework with social care customers, carers and residents in Wokingham Borough be confirmed. The recommendations are as follows:


1)        that all chargeable services will be charged for, subject to a financial assessment, with the objective of removing subsidies for those who can afford to fund the cost of their care package (generally those with more than £23,250 in savings);


2)        that the new charges are phased in for those currently receiving services such that any increase in charges is capped at £50 per week up until the end of March 2017, but that the full charge is applied thereafter.
