Adult social care charging reform: minimum viable product (MVP) software requirements specification
DHSC

Where the person drawing on care completes the assessment themselves and the local authority assures itself that this is an accurate reflection of the person's needs. This is out of scope for the MVP but some local authorities may use existing capabilities to offer this to their community.

TLAP

A form or questionnaire that you complete yourself, either on paper or online, explaining your circumstances and why you need support. A social care worker or advocate can help you do this. If your council asks you to complete a self-assessment form, it will use this information to decide if you are eligible for social care services or if you need a full assessment by a social worker.
