Product description

Why should you buy Community Care Law and Local Authority Handbook

Community Care Law and Local Authority Handbook examines the duties and responsibilities of local authorities in the provision of community care services particularly following the implementation of the Care Act 2014. It also includes chapters on the Mental Health Act 1983, the Mental Capacity Act 2005, Children Leaving Care, Finance and Charging, the distinction between Health and Social Care Services, Social Housing, and Asylum Seekers.

Community Care Law and Local Authority Handbook brings together in one place all the statutory materials that comprise the legal framework, together with related materials such as Codes of Practice, Guidance, and extracts from leading judgments. The materials are complemented by the authors' expert commentary explaining how the various statutes interrelate and how they have been interpreted by the courts. The result is a handbook that provides the practitioner with the tools required to deal with this important area of law.

This new edition has been substantially revised to reflect the implementation of the Care Act 2014, changes to the Mental Health Act 1983 and revised Code of Practice, new Court of Protection Rules, and significant new case law.

"It is particularly useful for outlining how the Care Act impacts across a very broad range of local authority functions and duties. The book has been on my shelf for a couple of weeks now, and I have already found myself raiding it for relevant information (and usually finding it) ... a very useful addition to the bookshelves." mentalcapacitylawandpolicy.org.uk

"As a busy practitioner, Community Care Law and Local Authority Handbook will never be far from my desk and it is already a well-thumbed resource for initial advice." Jenny McCabe Partner, Darbys LLP, Oxford
