Community Catalysts have released an insightful report titled
'Choice Making Pathways In Social Care'.
In view of the 2014 Care Act - meant to increase the control
people have over their care - the report looks at the choices
people have regarding their care, how they access key information
and advice, and the obstacles many still face in selecting the care
they would like.
Head over to Community
Catalysts to read the report.
We've also attached two documents we produced back in October
last year, which can be found below. 'Promoting people's right to
choice and control under the Care Act 2014' explores how local
authorities are performing, and 'Key Messages' provide a useful
summary of the things your local authority should have told you
about the Care Act and the responsibilities they have regarding:
assessment, eligibility decisions, the definition of and
entitlement to Personal Budgets, and the control people should
enjoy over their support.
