The Law Commission - Adult Social Care
The Law Commission's latest report makes recommendations for a single, clear, modern statute and code of practice that would pave the way for a coherent social care system.
Under the reforms proposed in the report, older people, disabled people, those with mental health problems and carers will, for the first time, be clear about their legal rights to care and support services.
Local councils across England and Wales will have clear and concise rules to govern when they must provide services.
