Raising the Charging Thresholds for non-residential Social Care services:

This paper summarises estimates of the cost and numbers of people likely to benefit from raising the buffer applied to charging thresholds for non-residential social care from 16.5% to 25%.  Local authorities can charge people for Social Care services provided in their own homes or in the community.  The Local Authority will assess a person’s ability to pay for Social Care and ensure they have the minimum amount they need to live on: this is called the charging threshold.
