The Care Act: what you need to know
This session will focus on accessing social care during COVID19 from a sight loss perspective. This will be a practical session looking at your legal rights to assistance from the local authority under the Care Act and what can be done if these rights are not being recognised and acted upon.
We will look at the key provisions under the Care Act for getting needs assessments, VI rehabilitation, disability equipment, minor adaptations and longer-term support. We will also cover some of the difficulties people report with accessing this support and the impact that COVID19 and the Coronavirus Act has had on the social care landscape.
Finally, we will provide an overview of the services and self-help resources RNIB has created to help people to challenge their local authority where they are not getting the assistance they are entitled to. This session will also be repeated at 5pm on 31 March.
