Resource Allocation System (RAS)
The system a local authority uses to decide how much money adults get for their support. The system has clear, public rules so everyone can see that money is given out fairly. It is based on a set of questions and enables a local authority to work out what a person’s Indicative Budget will be, based on what support they need. It relies on a scoring system based on answers given to a series of questions and then places people within a series of funding bands.
