The Care Act, which came into force in April 2015, has the potential to transform the support given by councils to any unpaid carer living in their area. It gives every single carer the right to have an assessment of their needs and places a duty on council to ensure they are doing all they can to protect carers health and wellbeing. It’s a legal recognition of the immense value and contribution made by England’s team of 5.5 million unpaid carers.
