What is the relationship between FACE Assessments and the FACE RAS?

The assessment tool that most commonly facilitates our RAS (the Overview) pre-dates the RAS by several years.

The original work we did to develop our RAS was to identify the key items within the Overview for resource allocation, which is now a 'dataset' in its own right, meaning that our assessment tools can be used in the absence of our RAS and vice versa.

It remains our recommendation though that the two are used together to avoid the assessment process being 'de-coupled' from estimating the personal budget...
