Plain English definition
Think Local Act Personal (TLAP) Jargon Buster
Think Local Act Personal

An assessment that the council should carry out before a young person turns 18, if it is likely that they will need care and support from adult community care services. You can ask for this even if a child has not previously been receiving any services. The assessment should include a predicted personal budget, so that young people and their families can plan for the future.
