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

A professional who is trusted to make an assessment of your needs on behalf of one or more organisations, such as a council, care provider or hospital, so that you only need to be assessed once. Trusted assessors may come from the health, social care or the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector (VCSE). Trusted assessors are used, for example, to help you prepare to leave hospital, to arrange support such as equipment and adaptations to help you live at home, or to carry out an assessment of your needs as a carer.
