Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014: part 4 and 5 code of practice (charging and financial assessment)

This code provides guidance to the Part 4 and 5 of the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014, in relation to direct payments, choice of accommodation, charging and financial assessment. The Act establishes that local authorities can exercise the discretion to charge for the provision of care and support, or to require a contribution or reimbursement, where they feel it is appropriate to do so and where they have established that the person required to pay any charge, contribution or reimbursement, has sufficient financial means to do so. The code covers: designing a charging policy; common issues in relation to charging; charging for care and support in a care home; choice of accommodation when arranging care in a care home; making payments for additional costs for preferred accommodation; charging for care and support in the community; and charging for support to carers.
