Results Updated 20 Jun 2016

The Care Act, 2014 provided a single legal framework for charging contributions for care and support.  In March 2015, the City Council published an Interim Charging Policy and initiated consultation on proposed changes to this policy.  Between November 2015 and February 2016 the City Council ran a consultation on proposed changes to the Charging Policy.  The responses to the proposals were generally positive and the City Council decided to implement the proposals published in the consultation.



From April 2015, the Care Act changed care and support in England. There are parts of the Act that allow decisions to be made locally on how charging regulations are applied.

Why We Are Consulting

We want to hear the views of citizens of Bristol on the application of the discretionary charging regulations.
