MORE than 1,100 older and disabled people in Leeds could pay more for home and day care under plans to revise charges.
A review of non-residential adult social care by Leeds City Council has recommended that subsidies for providing care in people’s homes and at day centres are cut.
If councillors agree, 22 per cent of service users would pay more than they do currently. Sixty people, 1.2 per cent of users, would eventually be charged at least £50 a week more than they are at the moment.
The changes would generate an extra £850,000 a year for the Council, which is facing a squeeze on its finances, to spend on adult social care.
