When the carer and the person being cared for live in different areas

Some carers live in different areas from the people they care for. Each area might have a different local authority. The carer might ask their local authority for a carer's assessment. But their locally authority doesn't have to support people who live in other areas.

We think it would be better if the assessment was done by the local authority where the person being cared for lives. But different local authorities have different ideas about this.

We need to decide which local authority should do the Carer's Support Plan and which one should pay for the support. It might be best if both local authorities worked together to plan and pay for the support.
