Think Local Act Personal

Temporary changes to the Care Act 2014 during the coronavirus outbreak to help councils cope. If a council cannot meet everyone's needs, it can give priority to people with the most urgent care and support needs. This would affect assessments, care plans and reviews. Councils should only do this if it is essential in their area, and they still have a duty to uphold people's human rights. The Government has published an 'ethical framework' for councils to help them plan their response to coronavirus in their local area.
