This best-selling book helps social workers gain a comprehensive understanding of how to achieve best practice in applying the Care Act 2014.

The Care Act 2014 is a pivotal piece of legislation for adults with social care needs. It is particularly important for social workers, as it sets out the legislative context for the core social work processes that apply to all adults.

The Social Worker’s Guide to the Care Act 2014 is a thoughtfully crafted resource that places social workers at the centre of the legal landscape. It takes a distinctive approach by honing in on what truly matters to social workers: assessing needs and formulating care and support plans that align with eligible requirements.

Through a blend of key concepts, case examples, and critical evaluation, the book enhances legal literacy in a way that empowers social workers. It equips social workers with a clear understanding of the legal framework within which they operate, enabling them to make informed professional judgements and apply their expertise effectively.

This eagerly awaited second edition reflects extensive revisions based on valuable insights derived from

  • judicial reviews,
  • Ombudsman decisions, and
  • in-depth research.

Drawing from the author's extensive experience in providing training on the Care Act, the revised edition introduces two new sections that delve into the realms of professional judgement and defensible decisions—essential areas of focus for social workers. Additionally, it incorporates the amendments made to the Care Act 2014 by the Health and Care Act 2022.

This substantially revised second edition of The Social Worker's Guide to the Care Act 2014 will be your invaluable companion in navigating the complexities of social work and will be a source of knowledge, empowerment, and guidance.
