The Council is committed to continue to provide high-quality social care services in Milton Keynes for residents who need care and support. This means that they need to ensure that their services are financially viable, and that service users are contributing fair and affordable amounts towards the costs of the service they receive.

Because of the Council’s financial difficulties, which are due to reductions in funding to Local Authorities and increasing demand from a growing population, they are proposing changes to how they charge for their services.  Therefore, from 23 January 2017 to 17 April 2017, Milton Keynes Council is consulting you on a range of proposed changes.
