The Care Act 2014, which covers support for Carers, is a very comprehensive piece of Government legislation. It has a broad coverage beyond the needs of carers, we have therefore sought to break it down and detail the key pieces of information around the Carer Assessment and what your local authority must do, by law!

  • Care Act 2014
  • Carer’s Assessment
  • After the Assessment
  • National Minimum Threshold
  • Eligible or Ineligible?
  • Find your local authority

Before you read this shortened process, below is a really good overview of what your local authority should consciously think about in their planning of support for carers. It was created by the Department of Health, please feel free to use it when speaking to those who undertake your assessment.
