This consultation ended on 21 August 2020.

We're asking for your views on our proposed changes to the financial assessment process.

There is a national shortfall in the funding of Adult Social Care and there is a gap between the amount of income we have available, and our expenditure on Adult Social Care provision. We have made significant savings over the last few years and tried to protect services as much as possible. To continue to provide services to everyone who needs them, we need to make further savings and/or generate more income. The changes proposed are being considered but we need to understand further the impact that they will have on people and are inviting you to comment and share your views.
