Local Authority support with home care funding

The first port of call needs to be Adult Social Services, they can be contact from your local council website. Social Services will assess whether funding for social care will be granted, this is means tested.

You may already know that you or your loved one will not qualify for social care funding, however there are also non-means tested allowances that you could be entitled to anyway.

Home care funding is explained further in the About funding section.

Paying for care privately

You might purchase care time privately for the following reasons;

  • You do not qualify for the means-tested social care funding.
  • The Local Authority is not providing all the funding that you would like so you may wish to 'top up' your care with private payments.
  • You might wish to buy care time to help a loved one out, in addition to what support they already receive, or to enhance their quality of life.
