Is social care free of charge?

Is social care free of charge?

Unlike the NHS, often you'll have to contribute to the cost of social care.

You can use our online calculator to check if you are likely to have to pay towards any care services you receive via Staffordshire County Council and get some advice if you do.

Your ability to pay for care is worked out through a financial means test. Depending on the amount of your income, savings or assets, you may have to contribute towards some, or all of the support needed.
