Carer support plan

Definition
NICE Guideline NG150 - Supporting adult carers
National Institute for Health and Care Excellence

If a carer is identified as having eligible needs following an assessment under the Care Act 2014, the local authority must provide a support plan that sets out how those needs will be met. The support plan must be developed in partnership with the carer and should set out the outcomes the carer hopes to achieve, including their wishes around providing care and accessing work, education and leisure. The support plan must be regularly reviewed.
