Adult Social Care: Consultation Phase
Posted on: February 24 2010, 03:30 pm

On 24 February 2010 we published a consultation paper on adult social care, which contains our detailed proposals for law reform.  We welcome written responses from all interested parties.  A press release is also available.

The consultation paper is also available in Welsh [shortly to be available] and large print [shortly to be available].

Join in the discussion now!

We have set up a blog on our adult social care consultation to provide a discussion forum for all those with an interest in adult social care.  The blog also provides the latest news about the consultation and information about consultation meetings.  Tell us what you think now!

Supporting documents

In addition to the full consultation paper, we have produced a number of supporting documents.

1. Summary

We have prepared a summary of the consultation paper, which is available in Welsh, easy read [shortly to be available], large print [shortly to be available] and audio format [shortly to be available].

2. Outline of our proposed statute

We have also prepared an outline of our proposed adult social care statute, which provides an overview of how our proposed statute would operate as a whole.  This document is also available in Welsh, easy read [shortly to be available], large print [shortly to be available] and audio format [shortly to be available].

3. Leaflets

We have prepared four leaflets, which are targeted at service users and carers, local authority and social care staff, voluntary organisations, and service providers.  These leaflets provide an overview of some of the main provisional proposals and questions which may be of interest to these groups.  Please contact the team if you would like us to provide you with hard copies of any of these leaflets.

5. Carers research

We have also prepared a table recording our initial findings from website-based research into how local authorities determine carers’ eligibility for services.  We welcome further information and evidence on these findings.

Responding to the consultation paper

The consultation period will run until 1 July 2010.  You can send your response in hard copy to the Law Commission, or electronically to the team.

We emphasise that the provisional proposals put forward in the consultation paper represent our initial view about how the law should be reformed and we will be reviewing these proposals on the basis of the responses to the consultation paper.  We welcome responses from all interested parties.
