Care Act 2014

The Care Act 2014 placed care and support law into a single, clear modern statute for the first time and enshrined the principle of individual wellbeing as the driving force behind it.

The Care Act ensures that people have clear information and advice to help them navigate the system, and a more diverse, high quality range of support to choose from to meet their needs.
