Fair access to care services (FACS): prioritising eligibility for care and support

Prioritising eligibility for care and support - Support planning

The White Paper anticipated that everyone eligible for ongoing non-residential care would have a personal budget, preferably as a direct payment, by April 2013. The Care Bill includes a duty on local authorities, when preparing a care and support plan for an individual, or a support plan for a carer, to inform people about which of their needs can be met through a direct payment, and to specify in the plan which needs are to be so met, and the amount and frequency of the direct payment.
