CareCubed is a secure online tool that helps calculate the fair cost of specialist care placements. Used in more than 60 organisations across the UK, the is available for both Adults services and Children’s services.
Built on a decade of experience with its predecessor, the Care Funding Calculator, the tool uses an evidence-based approach to give a clear baseline for care costs. It is used to bring clarity to the cost of care by both care commissioners (local authority and Clinical Commissioning Groups) as well as care providers.
