Social Care Charges (Wales) Measure 2010
What is the purpose of the Measure?
To provide a fairer and more consistent approach to charging for non-residential social services across Wales.
The Measure provides for the introduction of a new regime for charging which will ensure that local authorities across Wales adopt a more consistent approach to charging service users for non-residential social care services. It allows Welsh Ministers to set out, in subordinate legislation and in guidance, the detail of a fairer and more consistent charging framework for local authorities to adopt.
What are the benefits of the proposed Measure?
The Measure will regulate the setting of charges and remove the wide disparities that currently exist in the way in which local authorities charge service users for specified services.
