CQC's new assurance framework
The new duty on the CQC to assess local authorities’ delivery of their adult social care (ASC) duties under Part 1 of the Care Act 2014 came into effect on 1 April 2023. Linked to this new duty is a power for the Secretary of State to intervene where, following assessment under the new duty, it is considered that a local authority is failing to meet their duties.
Adult social care workforce
High quality care and support services are dependent upon a highly skilled and valued workforce, appropriately rewarded for their work and the vital impact that it has on people’s lives.
Working with people
'Working with People' is a diverse work stream and is focussed on supporting councils and the wider health and social care system, in their work with people who draw on support across adult social care.
