Annual Review of Adult Social Care Fees and Charges for the Financial Year 2023/24

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No


Councillor Tamoor Tariq, Cabinet Member for Adult Care, Health, and Wellbeing, presented the report regarding proposed raises in several Adult Social Care (ASC) fees and charges to take effect in April 2023. This would see adult care service setting fees (e.g. Residential Care Homes, Nursing Care Homes, Domiciliary Care Providers) uplifted to match the 2023/24 fees paid to commissioned providers which were agreed at March Cabinet, and other fees uplifted by 10.1% in line with the November 2022 Autumn Statement.


Members noted that these prices were cheaper than private care, and it was noted that any additional income generated due to these proposed increases would be immaterial because the charging of ASC fees and charges was based on a resident’s ability to pay and was therefore means tested.



Cabinet approved the proposed Adult Social Care Fees & Charges for 2023/24 detailed in Appendix A.


Reasons for the decision:

In accordance with the Council’s Financial Regulations, there is a requirement to review fees and charges on an annual basis.


Other options considered and rejected:

Alternatives were not considered, uplifts to Adult Social Care fees are in line the 2023/24 Adult Social Care Provider Fee Uplifts or in line with the November 2022 Autumn Statement announcement that the state pension and a number of other benefits will increase by 10.1%.
