This briefing examines what the joint committee on the draft Care and Support Bill has recommended and what this may mean for the future of social care. The committee’s report is very positive about the draft Bill and its potential to dramatically improve the delivery of care and support services. The Committee particularly highlights the enhanced rights for carers, saying the Bill significantly extends the rights of adult carers. As well as highlighting a number of important areas for improvement in the draft Bill, the committee uses the report to warn the Government that without a significant increase in social care funding, the Bill will not deliver its aims.
