Care Act: Assessment and eligibility training

Training, learning and workforce development for local authorities and their partners

The Care Act 2014 introduces new responsibilities for local authorities and safeguarding adults’ boards. It also has major implications for care, health and housing providers, people who use services, carers and advocates.

SCIE can develop, deliver and evaluate a training and learning programme tailored to your ADASS region, individual local authority or care provider. Many of our clients combine our Care Act training with our consultancy services.

I am pleased to recommend SCIE’s resources to local authority colleagues looking to implement the Care Act and to improve outcomes with and for local people.
