NAS information day on Social Care, Health changes and Funding

The National Autistic Society is running FREE information days to talk to carers and families of people on the autism spectrum about changes in adult social care.

Government reform of adult social care is focused on the ‘personalisation’ of support, and personal budgets, with the aim of empowering people to choose and control the services they receive. This will affect all those who receive support, whether they pay for it themselves or if it is provided by statutory services.

The information sharing day will cover community care (from the basics of what it is to how it can be accessed), the Care Act, Person-Centred Planning, Support Planning, Personal Budgets, Personal Health Budgets, Direct Payments, and how personalisation can work for you and the person you care for.

The next family information sharing day near you will be on:

11th November 2014

10am (for a 10.30 start) until 2.30pm

At the Chitra Sethia Autism Centre, Cambridge Road, Fulbourn, CB21 5EF

Refreshments and lunch will be provided
