Finances & Costs
Cost as broken down into accommodation, with additional costs if prepared meals and laundry service are required. Support costs are calculated on individual bases, dependent on hours required. We pride ourselves on providing high quality accommodation and support at reasonable, clear and transparent costs. So please Get in touch to find out more.
If you have been assessed as needing care services, you may be offered direct payments. As part of this arrangement, monetary payments will be made by your local council directly to you so that you are able to organise and pay for your care service. These payments are designed to support you to remain living at home, encouraging independence and social inclusion in areas such as employment, education and leisure activities.
The Government is looking to increase the number of people who receive direct payments, allowing more people access to the benefits that they bring. If you are considered eligible for support with funding, your local council are duty bound to consider direct payments as an option for you, instead of providing services to meet your needs.
