Good Afternoon

I’m writing to let you know about the forthcoming Applying the Care Act – making legally literate decisions about personal budgets masterclass which I will be facilitating on Friday 9th March 2018 in London. The aim of this one day masterclass is for participants to improve their ability to make decisions about what is a sufficient budget to meet needs – that represents good outcomes for the individual and value for money, by understanding how local authorities are sometimes applying the Care Act 2014 in ways that can be considered as unsatisfactory, and may be unlawful.

With councils under pressure to drive down the cost of care packages, social workers can be placed in circumstances where application of the legal rules and professional judgement is compromised – as evidenced in recent High Court and Court of Appeal decisions and findings of maladministration by the Ombudsman. This masterclass will enable participants to consider what can be learned from these cases, including both successful and unsuccessful challenges to reductions to an individual’s care package, and to improve their ability to apply the Care Act and the statutory guidance in a legally literate way – by utilising the approach set out in The Social Worker’s Guide to the Care Act 2014.

Delegates will receive a copy of my book The Social Worker’s Guide to the Care Act 2014

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the significance of decisions made in Davey v Oxfordshire and JF v Merton, in relation to reducing the cost of care packages
  • Consider recent Ombudsman findings on disputes about the amount of the personal budget (including those where the complaint was not upheld).
  • Explore the implications of the above for how social workers apply the Care Act to assessment, eligibility, care and support planning and reviews.
  • Review the mandate provided for professional judgement within the Care Act, the Regulations and the Care and Support Statutory Guidance.
  • Better understand the circumstances where a local authority can reduce/increase the cost of an individual’s care package and the how this can be achieved. Evaluate the extent to which local ‘funding panels’ apply the statutory guidance.
  • Reflect on what needs to be done to prevent disputes developing into complaints to the Ombudsman or judicial reviews
  • Reflect on complex and challenging cases in a multiagency forum

The Strengths-based practice framework for professional practice was released in February 2019.
A Strengths-based practice is a social work theory that focuses on people’s strengths and goals rather than their problems. This conference focuses on implementing a Strengths-based approach, and applying the Strengths-based Based Practice Framework for Professional Practice in Adult Social Work.

“A strengths-based approach explores, in a collaborative way the entire individual’s abilities and their circumstances rather than making the deficit the focus of the intervention…. When using a strengths-based approach, risk is looked at as an enabler, not as a barrier.”
