When finding that you need care and support for yourself or a loved one care be a worrying time. If you are looking to access home care services, then you need to alert your local council either independently (by yourself, or through your family or a friend) or via a healthcare professional such as your GP. Your council will then carry out an assessment of your needs to determine what level of support you require. They will then determine what level of financial support you might be eligible for to meet those needs.

Understanding what your options are for home care funding is important, so we’ve provided information here for your convenience. If you would prefer to have a chat with a member of our support team then please get in touch as we’ll be more than happy to help at this difficult time.

Self funding

Our service users pay for their care and support in many different ways. You may benefit from Local Authority funding depending on your circumstances, or you may need, or wish to pay for the care and support yourself.

Local Authority funding

If you need care and support, the best place to start is your local authority. This is because your local authority may pay for some or all of your support if your needs meet the eligibility criteria and you have a limited ability to pay for the services yourself.

Direct payments

Direct payments and personal budgets are offered by your local authority to give you more flexibility over how your care and support is arranged and provided. They are given to both people with care and support needs, and also to carers.
