Date: 
Wed, 30/01/2019

On 21 January 2019, the Executive Cabinet Member approved a report seeking approval to consult with trades unions, staff, elected members and key service users about the Council’s Appointeeship facilities.

The report outlines the facilities that the Appointeeship Team offer for service users who either lack capacity, are at risk of financial abuse or are unable to manage their own financial affairs.

Bolton Council are consulting around the following proposed changes:
• Introducing an Appointeeship Charging Policy (Appendix 4)
• Broadening the services offered to better meet service user needs

To have your say on the proposals please read the report and then send your comments by email to consultation@bolton.gov.uk by Monday 18th February 2019.
