Care Act 2014

Date Added: 29 June 2015

The Care Act 2014 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.

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.

CareMatch will be supporting the learning within Staffordshire in regards to the Care Act. Please see events for further details.
