Adult Social Care precept
The Adult Social Care (ASC) precept was introduced by the government in 2016/17 allowing those councils which provide social care to adults to increase their share of Council Tax.
Adult Social Care services support some of the most vulnerable members of our communities, largely supporting those in old age and adults with disabilities.
Due to an ageing population demand on adult services has significantly increased pressure on the council's budget. The extra council tax income raised by the ASC precept therefore helps to reduce this financial pressure.
LCC has increased their share of council tax for the ASC precept each year as follows:
|Raising additional income||£7.887m||£8.353m||£13.251m||£4.750m||£9.993m||£10.390m|
