If you have been assessed as needing social care services you will need a financial assessment to determine your ability to contribute towards the cost of your social care.
Nearly everyone has to pay a contribution towards the cost of the care that they receive, and this contribution will depend on your circumstances. Some people may qualify for financial help from Kirklees Council with the cost of their care, while others may pay for their care from savings and income.
See Care needs assessment for details on how you will be assessed.
