Social care, eligibility and assessments

Paying social care charges

We charge for care services (such as homecare, residential and nursing homes, day care and equipment) but how much you pay depends on your financial assessment.

We will send you a bill every 4 to 5 weeks for services you have already received. The simplest way to pay is by standing order, though we offer a number of ways to pay your social care bill.

Standing order

The most convenient payment method is by standing order. To request a standing order form, email or call 01895 250345.

Pay online

You can pay your bill online at any time.
