The Care Act 2014
The Care Act 2014 has significant implications for people who use services and their carers because for the first time it puts them in control of their care and support. It also makes clear what kind of care they should expect.
The TLAP Care Act survey explored the impact of the Care Act on the lives of people with care and support needs in 2016 – one year on from implementation of the Care Act in 2015.
