Support to councils from Think Local Act Personal (TLAP) for meeting Care Act requirements
As councils are revving up to meet their new Care Act duties to improve information about support services available in their local communities in time for the April 2015 deadline, TLAP have published a guide to help with the task.
The Guide, split into three parts, has been developed with six local authorities to highlight the common challenges each has faced, what they have done to overcome them and the early benefits to people in their areas.
TLAP Programme Director Sam Bennett described the guide as “a useful stepping stone to making the changes”
A follow up online tool to help councils plan their information and advice strategies will be launched by TLAP soon.
