Draft Charging Policy for Social Care Services


21. Advocacy

Carmarthenshire will engage with the person with care and support needs or their representative to complete the financial assessment and charging process. Where a person is identified as needing support to engage in this process then Carmarthenshire will, through that person’s social worker, seek to identify someone who can help to advocate on behalf of that person.

Carmarthenshire will also inform people with care and support needs who are receiving a chargeable service of their right to obtain independent financial advice.
