Care contributions consultation is launched
Members of the public are invited to have a say over Cambridgeshire County Council's plans to change its Adult Social Care charging policy.
The council wants the people who use its social care services to pay a bigger contribution for their care to raise extra money.
It is proposing five changes which would bring in nearly £2m of extra money for the council.
The public consultation began on Monday, 23 September and will finish on Sunday 15 December.
The council is writing to all those who may be affected by the proposed changes to ask their views.
It has also set up five meetings to explain the changes it wants to make and allow members of the public to ask questions and express their views.
