Care Act: a strengths-based approach

The main aim of the Care Act 2014 is to promote people’s wellbeing and independence. Through a strengths-based approach to the assessment process, people can be supported to understand their needs, realise what they can do, and how to best use their skills and networks, to achieve their outcomes.

This film explains the strengths-based approach and looks at how practitioners, through the assessment process, can ensure the person is at the centre - identifying their own care and support needs and how their needs can best be met.
