Fair Access to Care Services (FACS) replaced by a national eligibility threshold 14 What does this mean for carers? The Care Act strengthens the rights and recognition of carers: Improved access to information and advocacy should make it easier for carers to access support and plan for their future needs The emphasis on prevention will mean that carers should receive support early on and before reaching crisis point Adults and carers have the same rights to an assessment on the appearance of needs A local authority must meet eligible needs of carers and prepare a support plan

A carer should be kept informed of the care and support plan of the person they care for Children and Families Act 2014 15 What might this mean for local authority partners and care organisations? NHS, housing and childrens services share the duty to integrate Partners and providers will find: - They may need to respond to the wellbeing principle - Greater local authority focus on promoting diversity and quality in the market and market intelligence about self-funders needed - Greater local authority involvement in services focused on

prevention and delay - National, not local, eligibility criteria - New, statutory safeguarding arrangements 16 The wellbeing principle The general duty of a local authority, in the case of an individual, is to promote that individuals wellbeing. Wellbeing broadly defined: 9 areas in particular Local authorities should also have regard to other key principles when carrying out their activities, such as beginning with the assumption that the individual is best-placed to judge their well-being, taking into account their views, wishes, feeling, beliefs

17 Exercise Thinking about wellbeing in general, what does this mean to you? 18 Definition of wellbeing Wellbeing is a broad concept, and the statutory guidance defines it as relating to the following nine areas in particular: personal dignity (including treatment of the individual with respect) physical and mental health and emotional wellbeing protection from abuse and neglect

control by the individual over day-to-day life (including over care and support provided and the way it is provided) participation in work, education, training or recreation social and economic wellbeing domestic, family and personal relationships suitability of living accommodation the individual's contribution to society. 19 National Eligibility criteria the needs arise from or are related to a physical or mental impairment or illness

as a result of those needs the adult is unable to achieve two ( any for carer) or more of the specified outcomes: a. managing and maintaining nutrition

b. maintaining personal hygiene c. managing toilet needs d. being appropriately clothed e. being able to make use of the home safely f. maintaining a habitable home environment g. developing and maintaining family or other personal relationships h. accessing and engaging in work, training, education or volunteering i. making use of necessary facilities or services in the local community, including public transport and recreational facilities or services j. carrying out any caring responsibilities the adult has for a child 20 National Eligibility Criteria cont.:

As a consequence of being unable to achieve these outcomes there is, or there is likely to be, a significant impact on the adults wellbeing. All three criteria must be met to be eligible. 21 Statement from the Council Education, Health and Social Care will meet eligible needs as per the Care and Support Statutory Guidance (issued under the Care Act 2014). Where appropriate, and with permission from the person, a combined/ integrated assessment will be completed with any other relevant agency e.g. Health. 22

account, of how much eligible care you have needed in total 3 Support from family, networks community You have a financial assessment to see what you have to pay Costs are capped

There is a cap on expenditure on eligible care from April 2016 Summary A significant piece of legislation that modernises the framework of care and support law, bringing in: New duties for local authorities New rights for service users and carers It aims to make care and support clearer and fairer and to put peoples wellbeing at the centre of decisions, and embed and extend personalisation Local authorities have new responsibilities towards all local people, including self funders There are significant changes to the way that people will access the
