The councils previously serving Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole were replaced by BCP Council in April 2019. Our priority as a new council has been to ensure all services continue to be provided as normal.
As a result of this local government change, BCP Council has three different Adult Social Care charging policies which have been inherited from the previous three councils. These policies contain differences in the amount that people are charged for adult social care services and as a result we now need to create a single policy for the whole of Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole.
We want to charge in a fair and consistent way and so it is important that the differences in charging arrangements are removed.
This consultation has now closed. Results will be published in due course but may take longer than usual due to resources being focussed on the Council’s response to Covid-19.
