Consultation about Deferred Payment Agreements in Devon

From April 2015 the Care Act requires all councils across England to offer Deferred Payment Agreements to people needing care and support who meet certain eligibility criteria.

A Deferred Payment Agreement means that, if they don’t want to, people should not have to sell their home in their lifetime in order to pay for their care.

Devon County Council has asked Healthwatch Devon to consult Devon residents about their proposed Deferred Payment Agreement. Please read a supporting document supplied by Devon County Council. Or click here for our EASY READ version.

Please either, complete the survey enclosed in the document, and return it to:

Healthwatch Devon
First Floor, 3 & 4 Cranmere Court,
Lustleigh Close
Matford Business Park
Exeter, EX2 8PW

Or complete the survey online here.

The consultation runs from 9 February 2015 to 8 March 2015.  Please respond in this time to have your views taken into account.

If you, or someone you know, would like this document in another format or language please ring 0345 155 1012.  If you have any questions or queries about this consultation please email

What happens next?

After the consultation ends on 8 March 2015 we will consider all the feedback received, review proposals and publish our final decisions on our website:
