An increase in the amount people will have to pay towards their care from Derbyshire County Council will be phased in over two and a half years to lessen the impact of the change.

The county council’s Cabinet agreed to the phasing in of the increase at its meeting this week.

Councillors also agreed that the introduction of a charge for transport to adult care services of £5 per day could be delayed until April 2015, to lessen the impact of a charge for transport and increase in care costs being introduced at the same time.
