Care Act

The Care Act 2014, together with a range of regulations and statutory guidance, is the base upon which social care will develop over the next few decades.

It enshrines the new statutory principle of individual well-being, the driving force behind the Act, and makes it the responsibility of local authorities to promote well-being when carrying out any of their care and support functions.

The Care Act recognises that adult safeguarding is the process of protecting adults with care and support needs from abuse or neglect. It is an important part of what many public services do, but the key responsibility is with the local authorities in partnership with the police and the NHS.

Most of the Act’s changes took effect from April 2015. However, the major reforms to the way social care is funded, including the care cap and care account will not come into operation until April 2020.

UTS deliver a range of courses specific to the Care Act such as:

 

  • Care Act 2014

  • The Well-Being Principle

  • Preventing, Reducing or delaying needs

  • Independent Advocacy

  • Care and Support Planning

  • Safeguarding (please see our Safeguarding page for our full list of safeguarding courses)


Additionally, all UTS programmes are mapped to the Care Act and this is clearly demonstrated on course materials and certificates.
