The Care Act 2014 and other laws: a guide from Hft's FCSS


#1

We at Hft’s Family Carer Support Service have produced a guide to the Care Act 2014 (and the accompanying Care and Support Statutory Guidance). It breaks down the law into easy to understand points and can be used to support family carers in conversations with their local authority. We have included a section that outlines the principles of the Mental Capacity Act 2005, and there are examples throughout of how these laws can be used in practice, as well as links to useful resources.
