Community care charges

We want to help people live at home independently, safely and for as long as possible. To help us to provide services which meet people's identified outcomes we may ask you to contribute towards the cost of your care and support.

Charges apply whether services are provided directly by East Ayrshire Council, are purchased from an external provider or where a Self Directed Support personal budget is provided. The services/personal budget you receive will always be based on your identified outcomes and the charge will always be based on your ability to pay.

Services that can be charged for include:

  • Self-Directed Support Personal Budget
  • Care at Home (Home Care, Including Housing Support)
  • Day Opportunities (Day Care)
  • SMART Supports (Community Alarm and Telecare)
  • Meals at Home
  • Blue Badge Administration
