Peterborough City Council - Eligibility criteria PE1
Issue: Eligibility criteria
People who request council-supported care are assessed and ranked in one of four categories - critical, substantial, moderate and low. Currently the city council provides supported care for people who are ranked as critical or substantial but also includes people who are classed as high moderate. We are currently consulting on whether this is the best way to determine requests for care and whether supported care should continue to be provided for those classed as high moderate.
If a change in eligibility criteria is agreed then changes to people’s current care packages would only be made after their needs were reviewed. These reviews may well find that their needs have increased but may also identify that they might benefit from re-ablement or a different type of service/support available from a different provider, for example voluntary organisations.
