The Department of Health works to define policy and guidance for delivering a social care system that provides care equally for all, whilst enabling people to retain their independence, control and dignity.

Information, advice and support for carers can be found through the Carers Direct link on the right hand side of the page. If you are looking for a job or career in social care, visit the Social care careers site.
