Part 1 – Care and support

View notes on this part

This Part of the Bill imposes duties on local authorities regarding the provision of care and support relating both to adults who have a need for such care, and carers who have a need for support. Most clauses are designed to cover both adults needing care, and adults who are carers. In some cases, there are separate provisions, and the terms “adult needing care” and “carer” are used as needed.
