About this event

Did you know that the Government are planning to make changes to the way adult social care is funded?

Would you like to learn more and join a discussion on how this may impact you or your family? 

Have you got experience of receiving social care yourself?
Have you got experience of supporting someone who receives social care?

If you answer yes to either of these questions you could take part in an online discussion about the planned changes. This will then form part of a report to Government. 

Join Healthwatch Warwickshire online on:

Tuesday 26th April from 9:30am to 11:00am.

Some of the key changes being proposed are:

1. Care cap: a cap on the amount any individual can spend on their personal care over a lifetime.

2. Means testing: a new system of means testing to take account of individuals’ assets and income.

3. Fair cost of care: a consistent cost of care will be established to support providers.

4. Care brokerage: Enacting section 18(3) of the Care Act will mean all individuals can ask the council to arrange their care
