The Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Bill – Charges, Children in Wales Consultation, 24/4/13 [W]

The Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Bill makes provisions to allow local authorities to impose charges for providing or arranging a service where appropriate. The Bill makes separate provision for charging for preventative services and for the provision of information, advice and assistance. Regulations will provide for the circumstances in which local authorities may or may not charge for such provision and the circumstances in and extent to which local authorities are to be required to take account of a person’s ability to pay when determining the amount of the charge.

Children in Wales will be giving evidence on the charging aspects of the bill in early May and is interested in hearing the views of our members the possible impact that it could have.  Please send us your views using the online form, which can be accessed at: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/GJJQ7Z9
