The Care Act 2014.
The Care Act 2014 is a law that sets out how people’s care and support needs should be assessed, planned and delivered in England. It aims to promote people’s wellbeing and independence, while also ensuring that they are protected from abuse and neglect.
The Care Act 2014 came into effect on April 1, 2015, and it replaced several previous laws and regulations that governed adult social care in England. The Act places a strong emphasis on prevention, so that people receive the support they need to stay well and independent for as long as possible.
