On 14 May the Minister of State for Care required all local authorities to submit a care home support plan. The Minister asked local authority Chief Executives Officers to work with local partners to agree a response consisting of:
- a letter setting out a short overview of current activity and forward plan;
- a template confirming the current level of access to the support offer; and confirmation that local authorities are carrying out a daily review of the local care market and taking actions immediately, where necessary, to support it
