Can These Fees Be Funded?

Yes, they can if the local authority chooses to pay for the service.

If you, or the person you care for, contributes towards their care package each month, you can ask the local authority to recalculate and reduce this amount by the cost of our carers card service (£7.50 per month) This is because the service may be considered eligible to be treated as a Disability-Related Expenditure (DRE)

The local authority can choose to pay for the service irrespective of whether they feel it qualifies for DRE however. Ultimately it is their decision, however, given the challenges presented to vulnerable people regarding their ability to pay for goods and services due to the coronavirus you may find them helpful if you approach them to meet the cost.
