This guide is intended to be used by disabled people and people with long-term health conditions who have support needs. The guide does not cover everything that is in the Act but concentrates on those parts of the legislation that are most relevant to people of working age. Links to other information are provided at the end of this guide.

The guide starts by explaining some general principles that should apply to social care, then takes you through what should happen when you have an assessment, who can get social care support from their local authority, how to plan meeting your care needs, personal budgets and direct payments, how much you might have to pay, what to do if you want to move to another area, and some further information at the end.
