Parental Contributions Policy Consultation

Consultation Details

Title: Parental Contributions Policy - Your Feedback
Start date: 26/02/2016
Closing date: 07/05/2016
Status: Closed
Why are we consulting?

Local Authorities are facing cuts to the funding given to them by the Government to manage services. At the same time, the cost of running those services is increasing and Derby is now considering a range of measures to try to bridge that gap. One of the services under consideration is the ‘Looked After Children’ service. The increased costs of this service means the Council has to consider whether  to introduce a parental contributions policy for working parents of children in care who can afford to contribute to their children’s care costs. 

The Parental Contributions Policy is a new proposed policy and Council has to consult with people who may be affected.   Section 6 of the policy shows how the Council would charge people if the policy is introduced.

Who are we consulting?

Parents of children in care and anyone with an interest in the proposed policy
