The Care Act modernises a range of old social care legislation, to underpin good practice. This means that social care will become more personalised and will be based around a person's wellbeing. The Act will be brought in in phases and will help ensure Local Authorities:
Everyone who receives care from social services will have a care account. There will be a cap on the maximum amount they will have to pay towards the care and support they are eligable for. More information can be found on the Camden and Islington local government websites.
