Implementing the Care Act: Policy in Practice

March 25, 2015 @ 8:30 am - 1:30 pm

Implementing The Care Act: Policy in Action 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.

Due to the high levels of bookings we have been experiencing a few difficulties when accessing Eventbrite, should you encounter any problems when trying to register your place(s), please call (0161) 376 9007 and I will be able to help you with the registration through an alternative way as places are limited.

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.

Topics to be discussed:

  • Key principles of The Care Act and where services need to be at by April 2015
  • Cooperation and Integration: Delivering continuity of care and a reformed system of support
  • Duty to meet needs: Assessment of needs and defining eligible need
  • Transition of care: Between local authorities and for children to adult services
  • Enhancing the quality of care: Providing options, information and improvements
  • Duty to meet carer’s needs for support
  • Implementing the Care Act: Taking steps to deliver reform
