The Care Act

14 Apr 2015

Care and support are changing, becoming more consistent across the UK thanks to the Care Act 2014. This is a staged process of some magnitude, starting to come into effect this month.

The Care Act has been designed to put people in charge of their lives so that they can plan ahead for a good life on their own terms. Individuals who have a personal budget from their local authority will have more control of the help and support they receive. This is great news because it gives them more choice in the way they spend their budgets.

Your county council's website provides further information about these changes.

At ACSYL we specialise in working with people to make the most of their strengths, talents and aspirations. The definition of a good life varies from one person to the next, of course, which is why we work with each client as a uniquely gifted individual. Although no two circles of support are the same, each circle has the same commitment to understand, empower and celebrate the person at the centre. This releases talent, builds confidence, enriches communities and reduces social isolation.

Why are we so excited about the Care Act? Because it gives formal recognition to the fact that people are the experts on their own lives, and as such, belong in the driving seat.
