I haven't seen it mentioned before so if it has been. The new Care Act has superseded CRAG and it is now no longer applicable. This is now the new guidance........ https://www.gov.uk/government/uploa.../file/366104/43380_23902777_Care_Act_Book.pdf The Age UK facts sheets have been updated however I am unsure if those of other groups have been. There are differences, some very subtle that I have seen so far. The examples for a discretionary disregard seem to have a more favourable tone and a complaint I have against the LA to do with allowances whilst in Temporary Care seems to now have a better chance of success as the word "should" has been replaced with the word "must". However some changes may be more troublesome in that the explanation of how jointly owned property should be regarded in the financial assessment may have changed. The "willing buyer" part is still there but the part about the value being "nil" has gone. I have no idea if CRAG still applies to cases before April this year but as one of my complaints relates to that time I will hopefully find out. I would like to thank a very helpful employee of an LA that pointed this out to me Bit of a shame really as I had just about got my head around CRAG.
