Care act - Assesment and eligibility

Overview

The assessment and eligibility process is one of the most important elements of the care and support system. The assessment is the key interaction between the local authority and an individual. It should not just be seen as a gateway to care and support, but should be a critical intervention in its own right, which can help people to understand their situation and access support when they require it.
