The Care Act
Care and support is changing for the better – the Care Act in Shropshire
The Care Act is the biggest change to English adult social care law in over 60 years, reforming the law relating to care and support for adults and their carers.
The act replaces a number of different pieces of legislation with a single modern law and a new legal framework that has the wellbeing of individuals at the heart of care and support services.
This information is to help you understand the act and how we are responding in Shropshire, and to provide further information and contact details which you might find helpful.
