Carers and caring

What is local eligibility criteria?

Put simply: it is the set of rules used to see if carers have a support need and what level that need is at. This decision-making tool helps to identify who is eligible for what type of support and will ensure carers are appropriately supported.

The right level and type of support, if achieved would reduce the impact of caring and the associated risks which will allow the carer to continue in their caring role if they so wish.

South Lanarkshire Health and Social Care Partnership will support substantial and critical needs.

More information is available in our Local Eligibility Criteria document.
