|If you support someone who has had a financial assessment and has been assessed as needing to contribute towards the cost of their care then we would like to hear from you. We would like to challenge OCC’s Care Contribution Policy and ask them to be more transparent about how the process works. |
We know from the families who get in contact that many feel that financial assessments are unfair and that it is difficult to evidence disability related expenses above the allocated 35%.
To help support our challenge, we would like to submit some anonymised case studies to show the wide range of issues that families are dealing with. Personalised stories are much more meaningful and it is important that the Local Authority and Councillors understand the impact and stress that many carers are under as they navigate their way through what is a very unclear process.
We have created a template for you to complete in order to capture the key information about care contributions for person you support.
Closing date for completing this form is FRIDAY 14th JULY.
OxFSN will then send a letter along with the case studies asking for OCC to address our concerns.
|To complete the form please click on the above image or the link below. |
All case studies will be anonymised so there will be no connection to the person completing the form. We will not change any of the information you provide so feel free to avoid using pronouns if that helps.
In every area there is an organisation that plans and pays for NHS services.
This is called an Integrated Care Board. Click on the link to read more:

We hope that family carers, siblings and other relatives will be able to attend but recognise that people work, so if you are interested in knowing more about the project please get in contact using the button below. We are planning on running coffee mornings across the county to meet with those family carers who prefer to meet face to face. If you are aware of anyone who you think would benefit from knowing more about this project, please ask them to get in touch.

|The Moving Into Adulthood Handbook|
This handbook is primarily for family carers of a young person with a learning disability and/or autism and professionals who are going through or supporting someone from the ages of 14 – 25 (with an EHCP) through the Moving into Adulthood stage.…and even if the person you support is younger …or older, you may still find some of the chapters helpful.
Each chapter focuses on a different area and gives an overview of what you need to know as you and your family member navigate your way through the Moving Into Adulthood stage including further resources that you may find helpful.
The Handbook is designed to be a dip in and out resource – we wouldn’t recommend reading it all at once but we hope you will find it informative and useful.And please do get in touch if you have any suggestions, or a link doesn’t work, or we’ve missed something you think should be included. It has been checked but things change and we know, even we can get things wrong.
|You can find out more information about the contents of the chapters and how to download them at this dedicated webpage by clicking on the image below:|
