A stakeholder task and finish group was formed to advise Welsh Assembly Government Ministers on options for introducing consistency to non residential social care charges. This report begins with a summary of the consultation activity and an overview of stakeholder views. The main focus of the report is identifying and assessing policy options aimed at achieving greater consistency in charging for non residential social care services in Wales.
A number of options are identified and the approach to option assessment is discussed. A set of six option packages are assessed and multi-criteria analysis is used to rank them.
