About this event

Helping residents in West Sussex to understand how to make sure that any financial assessment for care is affordable.

About this event

Please join us at this webinar which will be recorded for later viewing.

We aim to help residents by sharing information about the financial assessment (its purpose and processes), as well as what to do if you have concerns over what you have been asked to pay.

We will explore:

  • How to gain the confidence to discuss the process and disability costs you have
  • What resources and communication are needed to make sure your individual circumstances are understood
