Options for the Eligibility Framework for Care & Support under regulations stemming from the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014: revised final draft 13 June 2014

This document outlines options for the design of national eligibility criteria for Wales. These were with advice from a Technical Working Group on Eligibility considering this issue on behalf of the Welsh Government in March and April 2014. The report has been prepared following the final meeting of the group on 2 April 2014 and refined through a wider stakeholder engagement process during May and June 2014. Determining eligibility is one step in a person’s journey through the system of care and support and should not be seen in isolation from other core elements of the new service model introduced through the Act. It is an element within a wider process for assessing and responding to the needs of the individual that reflects and complements the process for assessing and responding to the needs of the wider community. The report has been produced to support the development of regulations for determining eligibility. Further details about the wider process of assessing, planning, delivering and reviewing care and support will be developed through regulations under other sections of the Act and through the overarching code of practice
