Adult social care charging policy consultation

This consultation will be open until 19 October 2018.

The consultation

We are seeking your views on two proposals to change the adult social care charging policy and to better understand how these proposed changes could impact you.

We want Ealing to be a healthy, safe and great place. Adults’ social care services have a duty to provide support to those who need it. Like all councils, we are finding it hard to balance the budget as national funding for council services reduces and more people need support. We are exploring new ways to deliver services and address our financial challenges. This consultation will help us to explore the impact of proposals to change the charging policy for adult social care. The consultation process helps the council understand the impact before making decisions.

Your views

We want to consider the views of a range of people who have an interest in this or might be affected by the proposals. This includes those who currently receive help and support from adult social care in Ealing, their carers or organisations who have a client base who might be affected by these proposals.

It is important that you read the consultation document first so that you fully understand what the council is proposing. Once you have done so, please complete a short survey to submit your views. An Easy Read version of the document is available. The consultation document is also available in a number of community languages including Indian Punjabi, Urdu, Somali and Polish.

This consultation will be open until 19 October 2018.

If you would like the survey and consultation document translated into another language, would like an easy read / print / large print version of the survey or would like a member of the team to visit your community group to talk about the consultation, please email MyContribution@ealing.gov.uk.

What happens next?

Your feedback will inform any recommendations made to Cabinet in January 2019. If accepted, these changes would come into effect from April 2019.
