Independent Social Work Consultancy LWDadmin
Providing Choice & Flexibility Via A Privatised Route
Just as with social workers employed by your local social services department, an independent social worker is registered with the HCPC and abides with the standards of proficiency and expectations to provide an exemplary service. A private social worker can undertake the very same tasks as their local authority counterparts, are members of the British Association of Social workers (BASW) and hold professional indemnity insurance & public liability insurance. Social Workers have always provided private work, which is becoming more prevalent due to the current climate in social care. Just as with private health care, a social worker can provide the very same services such as a needs assessment to determine eligibility in line with The Care Act, support planning and review of care provision. Service users often go through the laborious social services route and are often already in receipt of services before a financial assessment concludes on your financial contribution towards care provision. Everyone in receipt of social care is financially assessed on their capital and income by their local authority, to contribute toward the costs of care. However savings in excess of £23,250 equates to being a self-funder and therefore being liable for the full costs of care, without any assistance from social services. Some local authorities are now also charging self funders a fee to facilitate support planning/brokerage. The advantages of a private route is greater scope for personalised care, provided in an effective and expedient manner that ensures needs are identified and appropriately met, without any undue delay due to being on a waiting list. We are committed to representing our clients with the objective of ensuring and facilitating positive outcomes and will always act in the best interests of our clients and their support networks. Ensuring you have appropriate advice and information at the specific point you require it, is extremely important in ensuring the right, most appropriate and cost-effective care decisions are made.
