Charging for social care changes

The Welsh Government has made uprating changes to the social care charging rules – which have now taken effect. The head-line changes are increases to:

  • the maximum non-residential care charge to £90 per week;
  • the residential care capital limit to £50,000; and
  • to the residential care personal expense allowance to £29.50 per week.
The Part 4 and 5 Code of Practice (Charging and Financial Assessment) has also been updated (to reflect the amended regulations). For further details click here.
