What do you mean by 'eligibility criteria'?

Eligibility criteria are the specific requirements set out to decide if a person is able to receive certain services from Aberdeen City Health and Social Care Partnership and Aberdeen City Education and Children's Services.  Further information can be found below: 



I am moving into the area from another local authority. Will my direct payments package remain the same?

Not necessarily. When you initially make contact with your new practitioner they will discuss your present care and support needs. A new assessment will be carried out if it is felt that your needs have changed since your last assessment.  A new budget will be allocated to you and linked to your assessed outcomes. This may be different to the direct payments package you receive at present.
