Fair access to care services (FACS): prioritising eligibility for care and support
The future landscape of assessment and eligibility - The Care Bill 2013: key principles
- The health, wellbeing, independence and rights of individuals are at the heart of care and support; timely and effective interventions help to ensure people enjoy a good quality of life for longer.
- People are treated with dignity and respect, and are safe from abuse and neglect; everybody must play a part in making this happen.
- Personalisation is achieved when a person has real choice and control over the care and support they need to achieve their goals, to live a fulfilling life, and be included in and connected with society.
- The skills, resources and networks in every community are harnessed and strengthened to support people to live well, and to contribute to their communities where they can and wish to do so.
- Carers are recognised for their vital contribution to society, and are supported to reach their full potential and can lead the lives they want.
- A caring, skilled and valued workforce delivers quality care and support in partnership with individuals, families and communities.
