Find out how much you may have to pay towards your care

You can use our online calculator to give you an idea of how much you may have to pay towards the cost of your care.

The calculator will only give you an idea of the figure

We cannot give an accurate figure until you've had a care needs and financial assessment. Some expenses that you declare on the calculator may already be included in your assessment or may not apply based on the care you're receiving. We'll write to you to confirm your contribution.

If you have any queries that are not answered on our paying for care pages, contact the Social Care Charging team.
