Care Act 2014 and carers: opportunities for change

31 March 2015

The Care Act 2014 introduces new rights and entitlements for carers and the people that they care for as well as putting into law new overarching principles of well-being, new market shaping duties and other approaches such as personalisation.  Almost all of these new rights have been on Carers UK’s agenda for many years and we are pleased to see them enshrined in law. 

18 local authorities gave us their views about the opportunities presented by the Care Act 2014 for carers in particular areas.  The responses looked at opportunities around joint working with health, using technology and market shaping to improve outcomes and support for carers.
