Reply To: What constitutes a professional assessment of support needs?

Leonard Payne

An interesting old post and I refer to an old post of mine – there is no requirement in law for an external evaluation to be made. It is simply ‘was support provided’.

Granted that in the new Supported Housing (Regulatory Oversight) Act 2023, it appears that the method of evaluation will be defined, until then –it is what it is–

In this case DWP Guidance is all it is Guidance and there is ample case law that says “Look at the law not on the guidance”
