Bournemouth Council to increase social care charges

Plans to increase how much people pay per week for council funded adult social care have been approved at a Cabinet Meeting of Bournemouth Borough Council on 17th October. From April next year, 234 people will have to pay more for non-residential services such as day centre visits, transport and home visits and in some cases individuals will be paying over £200 each week. The breakdown of the 234 people affected is as follows:

  86 people will pay up to £30 per week more
