The emphasis in the Care Act is that care and support planning should put a person in control of their care and that the person must be as actively involved, with support, as required, and influential as is possible. The person should know how their budget was calculated and feel confident that the personal budget is correct and sufficient to meet their care and support needs. Support planning is about considering options and solutions, strengths which have been identified and what is available in the person’s community. The plan needs to include the person’s outcomes, their assessed needs and assets, the input of any carers, how any outstanding needs will be met, the person’s own financial contribution, as applicable, and whether a direct payment will be taken
