Consultation description

We are seeking views on the practical details of how the changes to the funding system should happen and be organised locally. We are interested in hearing what you think about topics such as:

  • how the capped costs system should work
  • how deferred payments should be administered
  • how we can help people make informed choices about their care and support

The reforms to care funding are one part of a wider programme that will put individuals’ wellbeing at the heart of care and support services, and put them more in control of their lives.

Detailed analysis of these reforms and the problems they address is available in the ‘Universal Deferred Payments Impact Assessment’ and ‘Funding Reform Impact Assessment’ published with the Care Bill.
