No specific assessment has been made. Local authorities are responsible for assessing individual’s eligibility for care and support under the Care Act 2014 and where the individual is eligible for financial support, for meeting those needs. Where individuals are not eligible for financial support, local authorities may support individuals to make arrangements for care.
