What is a care and support plan?
This is a personal action plan that sets out what your needs are and how and who will met these.
You have a right to a say in:
- what needs your care plan covers, and
- what you want the care plan to help you do or achieve in your life, and
- what support you get, and
You have a statutory right to get a copy of your care plan. Your care plan should include
- all your ‘met’ needs e.g. a need that is being met by someone else caring for you
- all your ‘unmet’ needs and how the care plan says these will be met.
Reviewing your care and support plan
You have a right to have your care plan looked at again with Brent Council if anything changes about your needs or situation. It must be looked at again at least once a year or more often if:
- your needs change, or
- you are not happy with the support you get
- a service no longer meets your needs, or
- a carer can no longer offer the same level of support.
The review happens in a meeting. It should look at:
- what has worked well, and
- what has not worked, and
- how you have achieved the outcomes you wanted, and
- if you want things to change
