Care Act Implementation – Best practice


  • Barking and Dagenham have a Care & Support Hub website where anyone can find out about the large range of social care services in Barking and Dagenham, as well as advice and information about the care and support options that are available.
  • Enfield have a “Keeping House” scheme Opens in a new window Opens in a new window which benefits homeowners in long term care, enabling people to lease their house to the local authority through a housing association partner in return for a guaranteed rent, for a fixed period of time.
    • As a result people entering residential or nursing care are able to generate income from their properties to fund the on-going costs of their care.
    • The Council is also bringing empty properties back into use for people/families in housing need.
