This resource is an easy-read booklet about the Care Act 2014, written by the Government. It has been developed for parents and young people as well as local authorities and councils.
The Care Act is a new law about care and support for adults in England. Because there are a lot of different laws on care and support it is difficult to know what care and support you could get. The 2014 Care Act brings them together under one new law which gives the clear and simple rules and guidance on the law. Also discussed is what people should be able to get, what councils will have to do and guidance and information for councils how to use the Care Act properly.
