In case you are not aware yet, here is the letter for Royal Borough of Greenwich Council on the
Delay to changes in the way we charge for Adult Social Care services.
Due to the current and rapidly changing situation with Coronavirus, the Council has taken the decision to postpone planned changes to social care contributions which were agreed by the Council cabinet in January.
We recognise that this is a stressful time for people who have social care needs and therefore this is not the right time to make such a change.
During this period Council staff are focusing on making sure that essential services are maintained to older and disabled people with care and support needs, and that they are available to provide advice and support.
At present, I can tell you that the changes to social care contribution social care charging will be postponed until September. We will review this date in July and write to you again in the first week of August to either extend the postponement or confirm the date the changes will happen. Please note, your contribution may still change if your financial situation changes. We will write to you to tell you if that’s the case.
If you have any queries about this letter, please email the team at firstname.lastname@example.org or call and leave a voicemail on 020 8921 3233. A financial assessment officer will call you back with an answer to your query within 3 working days.
