Adult Social Care Choice Framework (Department of Health)


The adult social care choice framework explains the choices people who live in England have in relation to the care and support paid for by their council. Section headings cover:

  1. Choices about care and support.
  2. Rights to choose services paid for by your council.
  3. Rights to choice if you are caring for someone.
  4. Rights to choose a residential care home paid for by your council.
  5. Rights to information and advice.
  6. Where to find information and support.
  7. How to complain about services arranged by your council.

“This Social Care Choice Framework sets out the choices currently available as of April 2013. The Department is proposing to alter the way that care and support works, through the Care Bill and the Caring for Our Future White Paper and will therefore update the choice framework when these new policies take effect”.

  1. Sally A Mollard (Mrs) says:

    Choices are already in place, but we are deliberately not told about them if there is a hint of money in the persons coffers, or as happened in my husband’s case Adult Social Care steps in so NHS funding is not given and when it finally is choices are still not given. Unless a person knows the system there are no choices and they are deliberately denied.
