requirement to have a Fairer Contributions Policy to deal with the
assessment of service user contributions.

budget might be will take place, and this will be the designated
indicative amount. A financial assessment will then be carried out
in accordance with the Council Fairer Contributions Policy to
determine the maximum amount that the service users may be liable
