Implementing the Care Act: Policy in Practice

  • Wednesday, 25 March 2015
  • Manchester Conference Centre
  • 08:30 - 13:30
  • Overview

Implementing The Care Act: Policy in Practice will offer practical guidance for local authorities and care providers to successfully deliver social care reforms and present a workable solution to tackling the care crisis.

The Care Act 2014 includes the first overhaul of social care statute in England for more than 60 years. It promises a reform of the system with new duties, responsibilities and legislation for local authorities and care providers to implement. This event will explain how to put the act into action.

There a number of key changes outlined in the legislation that will be adopted from April 2015 so it is imperative that service providers are prepared to implement the reforms and help drive up the quality of care and support. Aided by additional funding to local authorities for adult care and support, including £1.1 billion transferred from the NHS as part of the Better Care Fund, the changes promises some revolutionary legislation to deliver a better care system in England. There are new responsibilities for local authorities in the ‘wellbeing principle’ that are more structured around an individual’s journey through the system, new duties around need assessment and eligibility and also around the continuity of care.

The care reforms of course take place within the context of challenging austerity measures and budgets for local authorities at the same time as demand for services continues to increase. How can local authorities successfully deliver The Care Act reforms before and after the next spending review and ensure improvements in care and supported are achieved?
