Early results from the new Personal Care calculator are worrying. It looks like the only gainers from Free Personal Care are
• Those with high levels of savings
• Those with a high net weekly wage.
• Those with “other care” hours of 4 or less
Those who need most support will be the ones who see no difference in their care charges.
Help Scotland Against Care Tax gather more evidence by testing your own position with the calculator. That way we can support the Scottish Government in better designing this important policy so that it makes a difference to as many people as possible who pay charges for personal care.
