The Care Act 2014, comes into enactment from the 1st April 2015. As Coventry and Rugby CCG we have been working in partnership with our Local Authorities to implement the changes that the Care Act will have on Safeguarding Adults.
The new Act, replaces, ‘No Secrets 2000’ and introduces statutory requirements regarding the activity of protecting an adult’s right to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect. Working with adults with care and support needs to keep them safe from abuse or neglect.
This briefing note is to give you a basic outline of the Care Act 2014 and its impact on your duty of care to safeguard adults; click here.
