Does everyone understand the law to help adults (and young people in transition) get the support they need and are entitled to? Are you up-to-date?
Our adult care law seminar is led by Belinda Schwehr, LLM Tuesday, 27 February 2018 at St Thomas Conference Centre, Ardwick, Manchester (close to Piccadilly Station)
£120 (£110 for magazine subscribers and some concessionary half-price places for unwaged family carers thanks to help from Irwin Mitchell’s sponsorship)
Belinda Schwehr LLM will look at what can be done about the unravelling of social care rights and freedoms in the light of continuing austerity, covering:
Ø Direct Payments, the minimum wage, paying relatives, and sleep-in obligations;
Ø Commissioning; re-tendering and consultation before changing a person’s life;
Ø Supported Living – home care or not;
Ø Changes to charging – and the impact of receiving non-care services;
Ø The pros and cons of qualifying for CHC;
Ø Getting out of an Assessment and Treatment Unit;
Ø Update on DoLs.
Belinda is a leading expert in Community Care law and gives straightforward information on the law as well as answering your questions. You will also get detailed slides for reference after the event.
In these cost-pressured times everyone needs confidence on how adult social care law applies to assure people in need and unpaid family carers of their legal rights under the Care Act.
Do you know how to get access to funded legal support?
Mathieu Culverhouse Irwin Mitchell solicitors will explain the funding of legal challenges, and Belinda will explain how her new charity CASCAIDr can help.
