We've written a briefing for the VCSE on the new Care Act being implemented from 1st April 2015. The Care Act has been described by the Government as ‘the most significant reform of care and support in more than 60 years.'
The Care Act 2014 introduces major reforms to the legal framework for adult social care - to the way care is funded and to the rights of those in need of social care. It introduces new statutory duties on local authorities to put into practice the principles of personalised care and support.
Find out from our briefing how the VCSE can play a key role with other partners.
