Session Two: The Care Act: Information, Advice, Guidance and Advocacy
Location: Sandwell Council House (Chamber and Annexes)
Time and Date: Friday 15 May 2015 9.00am – 1.00pm
The passage of the Care Act 2014 heralds a long-anticipated modernisation of social care for vulnerable people, and has been in force since 1 April 2015. It has brought new duties for local authorities and new rights for service users and carers; along with new opportunities for providers.
This event will outline the information, advice, guidance, and advocacy requirements of the Act and examine the challenges and gaps, establishing what this means for Sandwell. Attendees will also learn about the commissioning intentions for 2015-2017.
Frankie Higgins (Commissioning Manager) – Information, advice and guidance
Beverley Stevens (Commissioner) – Advocacy
Sam Hay (Commissioning Manager) – Commissioning intentions
Interactive group workshops will then be facilitated by the Adult Social Care Commissioning team.
Along with presentations and workshops there will be a question and answer session concerning key issues and queries and a chance to meet the Adult Social Care Commissioning Team and Senior Staff.
