This section includes the Department of Health Care Act factsheets, a clause analysis, the LGA's Get in on the Act: the Care Act 2014 and briefings for councillors.


An introduction to the Care Act 2014

Must knows adults: The Care Act has been produced by the LGA for lead members to provide more detailed information.

The Department of Health Care Act factsheets accompany Part 1 of the Care Act 2014, and provide an overview and the duties and powers local authorities will have in the future.

The Local Government Association (LGA) has actively promoted the need for a fully funded and reformed care system for a number of years. Get in on the Act: the Care Act 2014 gives you the low down on all the proposals.
