Cambridgeshire County Council is proposing making changes to the Council’s Fairer Contributions Policy. 

The Fairer Contributions Policy applies to adults aged 18+ only.

The proposed changes to the Policy will affect how the Council asks for contributions towards the cost of some of our care and support services.

The Council consulted on four proposed changes to the Fairer Contributions Policy.  

The consultation period has now ended.

Thank you to all those who completed the survey.

The consultation findings report can be found below, including in Easy Read and large print summary versions.

The Council will consider the consultation feedback when making a decision on the proposed changes to the Fairer Contributions Policy in March 2018.

The Fairer Contributions Policy explains the amount a person will need to pay for social care support (their contribution). The aim of the Policy is to make sure that the amount a person pays for support is fair, based on their ability to pay, and in proportion to the level of support they receive.

The Council works out what a person needs to pay by completing a financial assessment. The financial assessment looks at a person’s income and savings and works out how much they will need to pay towards their support and what the Council will pay.
