The Care Act brings care and support legislation together into a single act with a new well-being principle at its heart. It introduces major reforms to the legal framework for adult care and support in England – to the duties of local authorities, to the rights of those in need of care and support and their carers and to the funding system for care and support.
What does it mean for you?
Implementation of the Care Act will have significant implications for the adult social care workforce in England.
The changes will impact the way councils do business and the roles of their workforce. They will have an impact on care providers and user organisations and their roles in the delivery of care, and the expectations and duties placed on them by the new legislation.
