Important impending changes which will become effective on 1st April this year will be discussed at public consultations in the borough being organised by SMBC.
The public consultation is about two areas of the Care Act where the Council has a choice about how it implements the new requirements. The first area is about introducing a new deferred payments scheme to help people pay for their care, and the second is about the way the Council charges for non-residential care and support services.
The dates and venues for the meetings are:
- Thursday 22 January, 9.30am – 11.30am Sans Souci Centre, Tanworth Lane, Shirley B90 4DD
