A stakeholder briefing has been arranged for Wednesday 18th October, 12:00 – 14:00 in the Gathering Space at Wolverhampton Art Gallery, which you are welcome to attend and comment on the proposals.

The proposals seek to change contributions to non-residential adult social care from a banded contributions scheme to individual financial assessments in line with the Care Act 2014.
This does not affect the financial assessment policy for people in residential or nursing homes.

The results of the consultation will be considered and proposals reviewed before any final decisions are made about the revised Contributions Policy.
