Paying for support

You may have already decided what kind of support you need, or you may be looking for information about how much it all costs before you make a decision. In either case the prospect of paying for care can be a daunting one for many people, particularly those on lower incomes.

If you are worried that you can't afford the care you need, but there are plenty of ways in which you can get help to pay for your support.

You'll find information here about the different kinds of help you can get to pay for support at home, in a care home, and for private care and support.

Select one of the options from the menu on the left to find out more. You may also find the information in the boxes on the right useful.
