Help from the local council if you are a carer - Do I have to pay for services provided by the local council?

As a carer, you have the right to have your own needs assessed by your local council. This could be as part of the assessment of the person you are caring for or in your own right.

Do I have to pay for services provided by the local council?

Whether you will have to pay for any services that are provided as a result of the assessment will depend on the charging policy that your local social services department operates. This is usually means tested.

A financial assessment is usually done at the same time as the Carer's Assessment.
