A local authority has a duty to place an assessed adult, with needs for care and support, in their preferred accommodation if certain criteria are met. If the local authority does this, the adult, depending on an assessment of their income and capital, may be required to make payments towards the cost of their place. A person may be placed in an establishment that is either a licensed or non-licensed care home.

have or have had a mental disorder
are disabled or infirm
