How is Devon County Council identifying the eligible social care outcomes?

Through the process of assessment Devon is identifying whether the person meets the
National Eligibility Criteria that is laid out in the Care Act 2014.

There are 3 parts to the criteria and the person must meet all 3 parts.

1) They must have a physical or mental illness or impairment that means that they are unable to achieve two of ten outcome areas.
2) These outcome areas cover amongst other areas personal care, managing a home, access to employment and parenting a child.
3) The 3rd part is that by not achieving those 2 or more outcomes it must be having a significant impact upon the person’s wellbeing.
For full details including all 10 outcome areas please go to the Care Act guidance on the gov.uk website.
