Replacement Care consultation launched today

The Observatory is supporting colleagues in Warwickshire County Council with a new consultation on proposals to change the ‘replacement care service’ provided by WCC.  Replacement care services enable a carer to take a break from their caring role and can be anything up to 72 hours a week. The service usually involves some personal care to meet the needs of the customer whilst their carer is out.

WCC has decided that it can no longer afford to subsidise these services, other than through means testing, and has developed some proposals for future charging that it wishes to consult on.
