How much is my council tax?
Warwickshire County Council adult social care
Statement concerning adult social care funding
The Secretary of State made an offer to adult social care authorities. (“Adult social care authorities” are local authorities which have functions under Part 1 of the Care Act 2014, namely county councils in England, district councils for an area in England for which there is no county council, London borough councils, the Common Council of the City of London and the Council of the Isles of Scilly.)
The offer was the option of an adult social care authority being able to charge an additional “precept” on its council tax without holding a referendum, to assist the Authority in meeting its expenditure on adult social care from the financial year 2016-17. It was originally made in respect of the financial years up to and including 2019-20.
The Council has decided to levy an additional 1% Council Tax to contribute to the funding of the additional costs facing adult social care, as allowed by the Government.
The additional 1% Adult Social Care levy in 2021/22 including the amount raised by the 2% levy in 2016/17, 2017/18, 2018/19, 2019/20 and 2020/21, will raise £30.704 million in 2021/22.
These funds will be used to help the Service with much needed flexibility to manage its resources in the most effective way. The Service will focus on the transformation of adult social care pathways, the way we deploy social workers and the enhancement of information and advice to enable people to shape their own solutions.
