Care Act and Funding Decisions

The relationship between a carer, support provider and the funding local authority is a critical part of the well-being of the person being supported.

However, many support providers find a ‘contract management’ approach to that relationship can often feel one sided. Providers are often excluded from the statutory decision-making processes that result in the contract. All too often, providers are the people who first become aware of a change in needs for the person they are supporting but find themselves caught in wearing budget re-negotiations that don’t always feel connected to the person, their needs and the capacities of the service.

This course provides an insight for support providers into the decision-making processes within the Care Act. Systematically understanding how local authorities are required to make eligibility, planning and funding decisions will empower you to be an informed participant in that process. It will enable you to better advocate for the needs of the person you support, and to constructively challenge decisions you feel are inadequate or wrong.

This course will help you navigate through the Care Act decision making processes, explaining the key duties and the relevant case law that helps us build up a clear picture about how decisions must be made. It will support you to challenge funding decisions on a legitimate and clearly argued basis.

Who should attend the Care Act and Funding Decisions Course?

This course is suitable for managers and senior managers of care and support services who are commissioned under the Care Act for named individuals. No prior knowledge of the Care Act is required.

All participants will receive a certificate of attendance.

What resources would be made available to the course attendants?

Candidates will receive a workbook alongside the exercises, scenarios and a curated ‘at a glance’ reference resource of relevant excerpts from the Act and statutory guidance.

How long is the course?

The course will be delivered over one day and will run from 10am to 4pm.

What is the location, date and time of the course?

The course will run at the Kayani Avenue, Redmond Community Centre, London. The post code of the venue is N4 2HF. The course will be delivered on the 30th of January 2020 between 10am and 4pm.

How can I find out more about this course?

We will be hosting a live video/event on our Facebook Page on the 5th of December 2019 through which we will inform the public more about the course. The live video will allow viewers to post their thoughts & questions about the course, and our trainer (who will deliver the course) will be answering the relevant questions that come up. There will also be a bite-size video released after the completion of the live event that will tell you about the course and how it can benefit your organisation.

The aim of this course is to develop knowledge and understanding of how statutory decisions are made about eligibility, planning and funding in adult social care.

Course Outcomes

  • Describe the key duties of the Act relevant to funding decisions
  • Explain the regulations for eligibility decisions
  • List key factors that contribute to defensible funding decisions
  1. Sufficiency
  2. Fairness
  3. Transparency
  • Analyse a complex funding decision and understand the reasons for that decision
