An A – Z of the Care Act 2014
As well as changing the legal landscape of social care in England, the Care Act 2014 has also changed its language.
Out have gone concepts such as ‘welfare’ and ‘community care’, replaced by ‘wellbeing’ and ‘care and support’. Terms that had been in general usage, such as ‘support plan’ now mean something different. And some phrases that appear similar on the surface, such as joint assessment and combined assessment, have different meanings under the Act.
To help with the navigation of this new terrain, Community Care Inform Adults has produced an A – Z of the Care Act 2014, which provides definitions and interpretations of 69 key Care Act terms.
