Who is eligible for free adult social care from a local authority?
If the person needing care earns more than £23,250 per year they are NOT eligible for free adult social care.
If the person needing care has savings or assets of more than £23,250 they are NOT eligible for free adult social care.
However, everyone in the UK is entitled to a free Care Needs Assessment, to establish their care needs, regardless of income or savings.
What are the options if earnings or assets exceed £23,250?
The person needing care can go on a waiting list for a free Care Needs Assessment with their local authority. However, waiting lists are often long and cancellations are common.
OR a paid-for Care Needs Assessment can be arranged at short notice with a private agency such as Nellie.
After the assessment, the person needing care can go on a local authority waiting list for paid-for care. The local authority may charge a brokerage fee (average £495) to organise the paid-for care.
OR paid-for care can be organised via a private agency such as Nellie.
We help individuals and families who can’t access adult social care support from their Local Authority due to being above the financial threshold of £23,250 outlined in the Care Act (2014).
