Why do I need to have a Financial Assessment?

After being given an assessment of need, all people who are eligible to receive a chargeable service from us are offered a financial assessment. The financial assessment is an application for funding assistance towards any chargeable service provided by the Council. This will determine if you are eligible for a reduction in your contribution towards the cost of the services we offer you.
