Understanding care funding methods
You may be eligible for care funding from your local authority or local HSC Trust. To find out whether you are able to get funding, assessments would be completed. These assessments determine what type of care and support you may require and what funding you might be eligible for.
Depending on your local authorities there are different criteria for assessment. The best way to find out about your entitlement is by contacting your local authority or visiting them online. Be aware that some local authorities and NHS regions may not provide funding for home care.
Even if you are receiving funding to pay for your care, you can still request to use our care services if you would so wish under the 2014 Care Act .
