Fairer charges for homecare


Posted on December 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Draft guidance for councils with social services responsibilities in England was released in January under a consultation paper entitled Fairer Charging for Homecare and other non-residential Social Services. The government is seeking comments on any aspect of the draft guidance before the end of March. Although the draft guidance does not seek to eliminate all variations in charging policies between councils, it sets out a broad framework to ensure essential requirements of fairness and consistency with the government’s overall social care objectives. See _Homecare Professional_ February 2001 for further details.
