Numbers unaffected by proposals to increase care charges

Currently waiting for a response from Greenwich Borough Council, they should respond promptly and normally no later than (details).

Dear Greenwich Borough Council,

At the Adult Social Care Scrutiny committee meeting of 9th Jan 2020, councillors were reassured that “most people will not pay or be affected” by the proposals to increase care charging.

1. How many people in Greenwich have a NIL payment? Please break down into
- adults aged under 25,
- adults age from 25-below pension credit age,
- adults over pension credit age

2. Of the people who DO pay but will be “unaffected” by the proposed increases, how many are there in the each of the three groups mentioned above.

3. For people who DO pay but will be unaffected by the increase, broken down by the same age groups, how many people pay:
Under £10 per week
Between £10.01-£20
Between £20.01-£50
Between £50.01-£100
Between £100.01-£200
Between £200.01-£300
Over £300
NOTE these are the same age ranges as given in the presentation so I assume these are can be retrieved from your system.

4. Following financial assessment, for each of the above age groups - how many are left with the BASIC minimum income guarantee figure for their age range (ie where no disability or other premiums have been awarded for the purposes of the minimum income guarantee.)

5. Please give the number of people who were provided a personalised breakdown during the consultation period specifically to inform how the proposed increases would affect them.

Yours faithfully,

Jenny Hurst
