Will I be eligible for support?

Question:
Will I be eligible for support?
Answer:

The Care Act introduced the national eligibility threshold for carers where they can be eligible for support in their own right.  In considering whether a carer has eligible needs, local authorities must consider whether:

  • the needs arise as a consequence of providing necessary care for an adult
  • the carers are providing care which is likely to have a negative impact upon their physical or emotional wellbeing and prevent them achieving the outcomes listed in the Care Act
  • as a result, is there, or is there likely to be, a significant impact on the carers wellbeing.

A carer’s needs are only eligible for support where they meet all three of these conditions. However, carers do not need to meet this eligibility criteria to access the Staffordshire Together for Carers Service.
