Between November and January – the Royal Borough held a care eligibility consultation event to decide who should be able to get help with care and support needs.
The Care Act 2014 – implemented in April 2015 – got rid of the old “Fair Access to Care Services” (FACS) criteria and brought in a new “National Minimum Eligibility Criteria”. RBKC wanted to offer support to more than just the people who met the minimum criteria and consulted residents about their plans.
Members of the PB user group who attended our meeting in January made comments and asked questions. We pulled this all together in a Personal Budget User Group consultation response.
The ADKC PB Team also put in a response.
