Care Charging

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Worcestershire County Council,

Please answer the following questions, or as many as is possible within time & cost parameters starting at #1.
1. How do you calculate the level of contribution that adult social care recipients should make to their care packages?
2. What income are social care recipients allowed to retain, after their contribution to their care package has been deducted?
3. What do you allow as Disability Related Expenses? Please provide a copy of your guidance if this is easier.
4. Do you use pre-payment cards for care payments? If yes can people opt out of using these?
5. Are there any restrictions on what Personal Budgets and Direct Payments can be spent on? Please provide a copy of your guidance on this.
6. Please provide a copy of the guidance document that your authority uses to make decisions on Direct Payment packages.
7. Do you have a contingency policy for DP users. If yes please attach a copy.
8. If a PA is off work sick do you provide extra funding to cover their sick pay – as individual employers can no longer get statutory sick pay reimbursed?
9. "What percentage of Direct Payments rates, that are paid to adults who directly employ their own PAs, are allowed to be spent on the following additional expenses?"
• National insurance employer contributions
• Statutory paid holidays
• Payroll charges
• Independent living insurance
• Advertising
• National Minimum Wage increase from April 2016
• Redundancy payments
• Pensions
• Training
• Contingency funding

Yours faithfully,

Ian Burnip
