For the last ten years, what and how customers need to pay is set out in the council's Adult Social Care Charging Policy, which is based on national legislation.

A spokesman said: "If you or a loved one accesses social care, or you’re planning for the future, then these changes could affect you."

"It needs to be fundamentally reviewed and updated now, to take into account the changes to how we receive funding since the policy was created."

"We want to hear your thoughts on the proposals."

To have your say visit the consultations webpage or pick up a paper copy of the consultation summary and questionnaire at council offices in Dunstable and Chicksands or one of our libraries.

We will also be writing to current customers who could be impacted if the changes are approved.
