The Care Act 2014 and Impact on Local Authorities
The Care Act 2014 received Royal Assent and became law on 14th May 2014. It will be implemented in two parts, in April 2015 and April 2016. The first part of the Act concentrates on updating, modernising and simplifying the system, extending current duties and creating new duties and rights. The second part of the Act focuses on the means test and funding service provision.

The Care Act 2014 and Transitions for Disabled Children
The Care Act 2014, which comes into force in April 2015, legislates as to how Local Authorities must provide services to adults requiring care and support that will enable them to achieve the outcomes that matter to them in their life. This legislation sees a change from the “duty to provide services” to “meeting needs” – it promotes the idea of what an individual needs rather than a “one size fits all” approach.

Over 200 local authorities, safeguarding boards, independent providers and national agencies have commissioned Tri.x to develop their procedures manual and then keep it up to date.
