Have your say on Newham Council care charge plans
Time is running out for people to have their say on plans to start charging for council care services.
Newham Council is looking at introducing charges for some adults in non-residential care and those who receive a personal care budget.
Bosses estimate about a third of those currently using the services will be affected, but have pledged to protect the most vulnerable.
Chief executive Kim Bromley-Derry said: “Currently, there is a consultation around introducing charges for some care services provided by the council.
“If proposals are agreed, about one third of residents using the services will be affected.
“The possible introduction of fairer charges will mean we can provide these services in the future.
“We will, of course, ensure that people have access to the benefits and support they are entitled to before any changes are implemented.”
