  • We don’t assess for free personal care.  The confirmation of the requirement for free personal care is at the support planning stage and is as a result of a general community care assessment. We could give figures for community care assessments but this would include more than just free personal care therefor this information is exempt under Section 17of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) act 2002- Information Not Held.
