CARE ACT 2014

PART 1 OF THE CARE ACT 2014

As an Adult social care work provider our work is governed by Part 1 of the Care Act 2014. Every Local Authority has a function to promote an individual’s wellbeing. Your local authority is responsible for managing social care services in your area. Councils may provide some services themselves, or they may buy services from care providers to meet the needs of their community. In some cases you have to pay for all of your social care needs.

Part 1 of the Care Act 2014 states as follows

Promoting individual well-being
(1) The general duty of a local authority, in exercising a function under this Part in the case of an individual, is to promote that individual’s well-being.
(2) “Well-being”, in relation to an individual, means that individual’s well-being so far as relating to any of the following—
(a) personal dignity (including treatment of the individual with respect);
(b) physical and mental health and emotional well-being;
(c) protection from abuse and neglect;
(d) control by the individual over day-to-day life (including over care and support, or support, provided to the individual and the way in which it is provided);
(e) participation in work, education, training or recreation;
(f) social and economic well-being;
(g) domestic, family and personal relationships;
