To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, whether the Government will require local authorities to develop social care contingency plans with disabled people (a) who may develop more complex needs and (b) in the absence of family carers due to covid-19.
Local authorities should consider how to respond where need has significantly changed alongside the Ethical Framework for Adult Social Care and the prioritisation guidance issued by the Department.
The Department published guidance for those who provide unpaid care to friends or family which advises carers to create an emergency plan for those they care for to use in circumstances where help from other people to deliver care may be needed. The guidance provides information on how to create an emergency plan and where to find support.
