Care Act 2014 - An Overview
Duration 1 day or half day
The Care Act 2014 is intended to improve people's wellbeing and independence. One of the key aims of this essential piece of legislation is to ensure that people with care and support needs have ultimate control and choice over the planning and delivery of their services. The Act enshrines in law an obligation on support providers to deliver services that focus on the wellbeing of the person and are based on the principles of personalised support. The first part of this half-day course is an introduction to the Act and focuses on what it means for those in receipt of care and support, for organisations and their staff. The second part of the course focuses on Safeguarding Adults duties in the context of this new piece of legislation.
By the end of this course, delegates will have covered:
