Calculate your care costs

Find out what you might need to pay towards adult social care using our cost calculator.

You can use the social care cost calculator to find out how you might need to pay towards residential or non-residential costs. 

What is residential and non-residential care? 

Non-residential care is when you receive care in your own home.

Residential care is when you receive care in a different setting, e.g. a care home.

Do I have to pay towards my care?

You will not be asked to contribute to your care support plan if:

  • your care is provided as part of an After Care Plan (Section 117 of Mental Health Act)
  • you've received confirmation from the NHS that your care will be funded by Continuing Health Care (CHC)
