Adult Social Care Precept (Staffordshire County Council)

The government has allowed adult social care councils which provide social care to adults to increase their share of Council Tax. This additional Council Tax charge is called the adult social care precept. ("Adult social care authorities" are local authorities which have functions under Part 1 of the Care Act 2014, namely county councils in England (Staffordshire County Council in this area), district councils for an area in England for which there is no county council, London borough councils, the Common Council of the City of London and the Council of the Isles of Scilly.)

This started in 2016/17 and it is a government requirement that this precept is shown as a separate line on your council tax bill.

The income generated from this charge is ring-fenced, meaning it can only be used for adult social care services.

The Adult Social Care precept (£165.30 for Band D) combines the amount charged in 2021-22 (£151.69) and the 2022-23 levy (£13.61).
