Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


To approve the proposed changes in fees and charges for inhouse community care services, plus meals, transport and laundry services for 2024/25


The Corporate Director Health & Adult Services in consultation with the executive member for Health and Adult Services has approved the new charging rates as outlined below to be effective from 8 April 2024. A copy of the report considered is attached.

Reasons for the decision:

The recommendation will help the council to recover inflationary cost rises in adult social care where appropriate.

Alternative options considered:

The option of not increasing charges has been discounted as this would be inconsistent with the cost increases paid to providers and would mean that the council incurred more of that cost. No increase would also be inconsistent with the Council’s Fees and Charges Strategy.
