Contributions towards costs of care and personal assistance are intended to enable any person whose ability to participate as a member of an authority would be limited by their responsibilities as a carer, or for a member to receive care support to enable that individual to carry out their role.
Claims can be made in respect of a dependant under 16 years of age, or a minor or adult who normally lives with the member as part of their family and who cannot be left unsupervised.
In respect of a member’s own care or support needs, reimbursement may be claimed where the support and / or cost of any additional needs are not available or met directly by the Authority, such as access to work, Personal Payments, insurance. These could arise when the needs are recent and/or temporary.
