     Hi

     as far as i can understand, in the context of the forhcoming CTS scheme, the government hasnt provided a strict definition of who is vulnerable in the same way as they have for pensioners.  in the practical application of who we consider as vulnerable in the proposed CTS, i have heard that organisations like northgate, have decided that a vulnerable person is someone receiving one of the various disability premiums – if so,  where does that leave customers who receive ESA, who are entitled to components in their applicable amount. surely they must be included, if so what is the accepted definition for councils as to who is vulnerable?

    thanks

    I don’t think Northgate have decided anything. Their modelling tool had, as a default, people getting a disability premium but from what I can recall (haven’t used it for ages) you could add your own incomes under “vulnerable” category. But in any case, that was their modelling tool. There may be plenty of parameters to tweak when the software’s actually delivered. When deciding who is vulnerable you have to have regard to existing legislation like the Equalities Act, Children’s Act and so on.
