Non-institutional care/day activities (SoL)

The service is care for individuals for a limited part of the day. It can be provided in certain premises, in the individual’s home, or elsewhere. The service doesn't include any housing.

Out-patient care may be aimed at children, young people, adults or families with some form of need within the social services' remit of responsibility. Authorisation may also be sought for day activities for the elderly.

For a service to be subject to authorisation, the care must be extensive and intervene in the individual’s life.
