TLAP publishes important Care Act Survey results…

Just published (29/06/2017), Think Local Act Personal’s (TLAP’s) report on the impact of the Care Act in its first year. This is an important document since the survey was commissioned by the DoH.

To find the report,  visit this TLAP webpage where there are links to downloadable PDF documents.

Its probably worth quoting TLAP’s introduction to its survey:

“TLAP’s Care Act survey, commissioned by Department of Health, is the first to explore the impact of the Care Act on the lives of people with care and support needs.  A survey of this scope has never been done before.  It was completed in 2016 following the first year of implementation of the Care Act in 2015.

The survey was carried out by 1,181 people aged 18 and over. Of these, 391 were people who need care and support themselves, and 643 were carers.

Questions focused on aspects of personalisation such as ease of access to information and advice, whether advocacy support was offered, people’s experiences of assessment and care planning.”

The report itself is 48 pages long, so not too long.

A reviewer at Disability Rights UK has read the report, and includes the following in their ‘review’ : 

“Results of the survey, which focused on aspects of personalisation, suggest that progress has been good in some areas of the Act, but in others, is yet to make a difference.

Sixty-nine percent of the participants said their care and support made a positive difference to their wellbeing and health. Areas of major concern, however, highlighted by the survey were people’s ability to access support, and the variation in their experiences, depending on whether they were funded by the council or self-funded.

There was also a marked difference between council’s perception of Care Act implementation, and the experiences of people and carers directly themselves.
