Abstract

<p>The need for social care for people with HIV/AIDS arose at a time of national policy development for community care. The<p><p>1989 White Paper "Caring for People", and the subsequent NHS and Community Care Act (1990) put responsibility for community care arrangements with local authorities. More generally, the community care movement places emphasis on<p><p>normalisation, that is enabling people to live as normal a life as possible; on user empowerment in the process of deciding and arranging assistance; and on support for informal carers. The White Paper and Act associates these desiderata with a range of more specific policies including developing and contracting with the independent sector, on better organised joint working between care agencies, on separation of the purchaser and provider functions of local authorities, and on the introduction of care management.
