Implementation of the Care Act


Why it Matters

Care Act 2014 replaces a range of legislation with a single modern statute that reflects 21st century needs and values. The results of Stocktake 3 noted the following anxieties within LAs:

  • Demand and costs
  • Market sustainability
  • Finance and IT systems
  • Information, advice and advocacy

Aims and Objectives

  • Support LAs in mainstreaming phase 1 of the Care Act
  • Oversee potential areas for legal challenge
  • Oversee modelling of the impact of phase 1 of the Care Act
  • Facilitate collaboration regionally on areas of mutual interest
  • Embed Implementation of ‘Making Safeguarding Personal’
  • Embed prevention (in particular around the Care Act)
