Care Act 2014: Information gap 'denying' people sufficient choice and control over care

Local authorities are denying people sufficient “choice and control”
over the care and support they receive under the Care Act 2014,
according to research published last week.




A review of Care Act materials
produced by local authorities found that councils “generally” failed to
give people adequate information about their rights to different care
options locally. The situation left people unable to exercise sufficient
choice and control over their care, despite this being a core principle
of the act itself, researchers found.
