Shropshire Council is seeking people’s views on care arrangement fees, charing and universal deferred payment scheme.

The consultation, part of the Care Act implementation, will close on Tuesday 28 April 2015.

To have your say, please visit the council’s website.

The Care Act is the biggest change to English adult social care law in over 60 years and will reform the law relating to care and support for adults and their carers.

The Act, which will come into force on 1 April 2015, will replace a number of different pieces of legislation with a single modern law and a new legal framework that will have the wellbeing of individuals at the heart of care and support services.
