The Carer Assessment IQP evaluated the effectiveness of the recently implemented carer's assessment process for the London Borough of Merton's Housing and Social Services Department. Using questionnaires and focus group sessions aimed at carers and social workers, we analysed the assessment, its implementation, and its effect on the carers. We reviewed the public knowledge of the process and the perceptions of social workers, and then made recommendations as to how a revised assessment could improve carer confidence in Social Services.
