Hundreds of vulnerable adults could face new Harrow Council social care costs

 

HUNDREDS of vulnerable adults could face new costs for their care and some may lose the right to free transport.

Harrow Council is consulting on a programme of changes aimed at saving £500,000 which would expose around 400 adults deemed able to pay to charges for transport, respite and day care.

Residents who already pay for home care would see a cap of £250 a week on costs removed, exposing around 200 to higher bills, while the cost of meals on wheels would also go up with the council axing its £170,000 subsidy
