The Care Act is a new law about care and support for young people and adults aged 18+ in England. Because there are a lot of different laws on care and support, it is difficult to know what care and support you could get. The 2014 Care Act brings them together under one new law which gives the clear and simple rules and guidance on the law. Also discussed is what people should be able to get, what councils will have to do and guidance and information for councils how to use the Care Act properly.
