Payment holiday for those receiving care in the home or community settings
Bradford Council is offering a payment holiday to all residents who receive adult social care services in a home or community setting to help support them during this difficult time.
In addition, the Council will not be issuing their usual year-end adjustments to annual bills for the past year at this time (up to 29 March 2020).
The Council were due to send out their anticipated bills for the forthcoming year from 30 March 2020 but now won’t be doing so until the situation in the country is starting to get back to normal.
When the Council is in that position, the annual bills will be calculated on the remaining number of weeks in the financial year and people will start paying charges at that point.
Any adjustments required from last year’s bills will also be made at this point.
