We welcome the opportunity to comment on this discussion document. The LGA, and ADASS have been at the forefront of calling for reform of our care and support system for a number of years and eligibility is a key part of the debate. 
 
The issues that the discussion document covers are an important piece of the jigsaw. However, they are only one part and this response should therefore be read in conjunction with the joint LGA-ADASS-Solace response to the recent funding reform consultation.
