The Care Act is coming!

Care and Support Minister Norman Lamb describes the Care Act 2014 as “the most significant reform of care and support in more than 60 years, putting people and their carers in control of their care and support”.

Highlights under the Act include:

The CCG and NELC are liaising with key partners and providers across North East Lincolnshire to ensure readiness for the first of the Act’s provisions to come into force in April 2015 (followed by further provisions in April 2016). 

More detailed information will be provided soon.  In the interim, the following link offers a useful summary of the Care Act:
