Care Act

Hi Sheila

Loads of reading done on the new care act.  Is there anything out there - in short version, easy read? A few service users have been asking me for copies.

Looking forward in hearing from you.


Dear Johanna,

Thank you for your question.

There are, as you know, many different sources of information about the Care Act.

I think the best for service users are some of the National Charity sites most especially Age UK which has a great deal of advice aimed at service users.

Another charity with advice and information on their site is:

There is also much advice for both providers and service users on these websites:

With best wishes.
