The Care Act brings care and support legislation together into a single act with a new well-being principle at its heart. It introduces major reforms to the legal framework for adult care and support in England – to the duties of local authorities, to the rights of those in need of care and support and their carers` and to the funding system for care and support.
What does it mean for you?
Implementation of the Care Act will have significant implications for the adult social care workforce in England.
The Act will have an impact on providers of care services, user organisations and the roles they play in the delivery of care and the new expectations that the new legisalation places upon them.
Drawing on our trainers’ wealth of experience in the sector our training sessions are an introduction to the changes brought about by the Care Act 2014. They are intended as knowledge building tools to inform and motivate the construction of competent workforce able to respond to the needs of individuals and the sector as a whole.
The Act introduces wide reaching reforms to adult care and support in England. Implementation of the Act is a major reform programme and underpinning it is a need for cultural change. Successful implementation will therefore require good change management leadership. We can offer a range of workshops including awareness sessions covering the whole Act or specific sessions focussing on particular aspects of the Act.
Typically topics covered in the workshops include:
- Introduction and overview of the Act
- Information and advice
- First contact and identifying needs
- Charging and financial assessment
- Person centred care and support planning
- Transition to adulthood
- Partnerships, cooperation and integration
